In the January 23rd edition of the MLN Connects, CMS announced the release of a Comparative Billing Report (CBR) on Shoulder Arthroscopies for Medicare part B claims. This information can be vital for Orthopedic practices during the audit process. Data will be compared based on other providers in your state as well as nationwide. However, this information is not available publicly so you must login to make sure your contact information is up to date. You can also visit the CBR website for more information. Never visited the CBR website? We strongly recommend you do, as this site contains great information about all specialties.
The Comparative Billing Report (CBR) contains data-driven tables with an explanation of findings that compare your billing and payment patterns to those of your peers in your state and across the nation.
CBRs are not publicly available. Look for an email from firstname.lastname@example.org to access your report. Update your contact email address in the Provider Enrollment, Chain, and Ownership System to ensure accurate delivery. Visit the CBR website for more information.
