Comparative Billing Reports

CBR201708: Modifier 25: Dermatology

On September 11, 2017, eGlobalTech (eGT) and Palmetto GBA released a national provider Comparative Billing Report (CBR) on Modifier 25: Dermatology. The CBR focuses on providers who submitted claims for established patient evaluation and management (E/M) services appended with modifier 25. 

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.
