Comparative Billing Reports

CBR201709: Emergency Department Services

eGlobalTech (eGT) and Palmetto GBA are developing a national provider Comparative Billing Report (CBR) on Emergency Department Services for release in December. The CBR will focus on providers of all specialties who submitted claims for emergency department services using Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) codes 99281 through 99285. The CBR will contain 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.
