I see a reason code message J1 on my remittance notice that I have never seen before. Could you explain what this message means?

Remark code J1 indicates that Palmetto GBA no longer considers that service to be an overpayment. Because Palmetto GBA initially paid the service, and we never collected an overpayment for that service, we are not issuing a new payment. This remark code shows that we are changing the "status" of that service from "overpayment" to not an overpayment. The J1 message informs you that payment has been suppressed.
