Comparative Billing Reports

CBR201709: Emergency Department Services

On November 6, 2017, eGlobalTech (eGT) and Palmetto GBA released a national provider Comparative Billing Report (CBR) on Emergency Department Services. The CBR focuses on providers of all specialties who submitted claims for emergency department services using Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) codes 99281 through 99285. 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.
