CMS to Release Comparative Billing Report on Physical Therapy in November

Posted on: in [ News ]

CMS will issue a national provider Comparative Billing Report (CBR) on Physical Therapy in November 2015. The CBR, produced by CMS contractor eGlobalTech, will focus on providers with a specialty of physical therapy and will contain data-driven tables with an explanation of findings that compare these providers’ billing and payment patterns to those of their peers in their state and across the nation. The goal of these reports is to offer a tool that helps providers better understand applicable Medicare billing rules. These reports are only accessible to the providers who receive them; they are not publicly available. Providers are advised to update their fax numbers in the Medicare Provider Enrollment, Chain, and Ownership System (PECOS) because faxing is the default method for disseminating CBRs. Providers should contact the CBR Support Help Desk at 800-771-4430 or CBRsupport@eglobaltech.com if they prefer to receive CBRs through the U.S. Postal Service. For more information, contact the CBR Support Help Desk, or visit the CBR website.
