On December 6 the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) will release a national provider Comparative Billing Report (CBR) addressing nerve conduction studies.
CBRs produced by Safeguard Services under contract with CMS contain data-driven tables and graphs with an explanation of findings that compare provider's billing and payment patterns to those of their peers located in their state and across the nation. These reports are not available to anyone except the providers who receive them. To ensure privacy, CMS presents only summary billing information. No patient or case-specific data is included. CBRs are designed to help providers conform with Medicare billing rules and improve the level of care they furnish to their Medicare patients. (View CBR samples at this link.)
For more information, visit CBR Services' Web site or call the SafeGuard Services' provider help desk, CBR support team at 530/896-7080.
