Comparative Billing Reports

CBR201801: Opioid Prescribers

In January and February 2018, the CBR team disseminated a national provider Comparative Billing Report (CBR) on Opioid Prescribers. The CBR includes comparative and educational information for prescription drug event data, and was sent to providers whose opioid prescribing patterns were different as compared to their peers on a specialty and/or a national level. The goal of this report is to educate providers on the concerns raised about extreme opioid use, and to share the latest thinking from the medical community on appropriate prescribing of opioids.
