Comparative Billing Reports

CBR Releases

The Comparative Billing Reports (CBRs) that are distributed to the provider community contain an analysis of billing practices across geographic and service areas. Typically a CBR will contain the results of statistical analyses that compare a specific provider’s billing practices for a specific billing code or policy group with the practices of that provider’s peer groups and the national averages. Each CBR release may present the data in different ways in order to best provide useful information. Each CBR is unique to that provider, and each provider sees only his/her own billing data. No data attributable to any specific provider is made publicly available.
