Comparative Billing Reports

CBR201707: IPPE/AWV

On August 14th, 2017, eGlobalTech (eGT) and Palmetto GBA released a national provider Comparative Billing Report (CBR) on Initial Preventive Physical Examinations (IPPE) and Annual Wellness Visits (AWV). The CBR focuses on providers who submitted claims for IPPE and AWV using Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) codes G0402, G0438, and G0439. 

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.
