Is this provider adjustment considered a loss?
#2; How would I document this on my tax return? I've been using Turbo Tax to prepare my return (my returns in general are pretty basic) but don't know how or if I can document this.
#1;aslongas you are contractually obligated to accept their reimbursement rate and not bill the client for the difference, I guess I do not think you can claim the unreimbursed bills on your return,. You need to contact the IRS for more info in detail
#2;as mentioned above
