The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recently issued national provider Comparative Billing Reports (CBR) on physical therapy. The reports center on physical therapists (PTs) in private practice who submitted claims for physical therapy services using current procedural terminology (CPT) codes 97001, 97002, 97035, 97110, 97112, 97140, 97530, and Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) code G0283 billed with the GP modifier.

The CBRs are being faxed or mailed to approximately 15,000 providers with a specialty of physical therapist in private practice. CBRs give providers an opportunity to compare themselves with their peers both state-by-state and nationwide, check their records against data in CMS files, and review Medicare guidelines to ensure compliance. The reports are for educational and comparison purposes and do not indicate the identification of overpayments. The reports are not publicly available.

To help PTs understand the CBR, the company that produced the reports will host a webinar on Wednesday, March 29, 2017, 3:00 pm–4:00 pm ET. During the webinar, PTs will be able to interact with content specialists and submit questions. More information is available at http://www.cbrinfo.net/cbr201702.

PTs who receive a CBR and have questions are encouraged to call the CBR support help desk at 800/771-4430, email CBRsupport@eglobaltech.com, or visit the CBR website at www.cbrinfo.net.
