On July 24, 2017, eGlobalTech (eGT) and Palmetto GBA released a national provider Comparative Billing Report (CBR) on Drugs of Abuse Testing. The CBR focuses on Medicare Part B providers who referred or ordered procedures for drug abuse testing with presumptive and/or definitive testing. The dates of service covered in the CBR are January 1, 2016 through December 31, 2016.
The CBR contains 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.
