Comparative Billing Reports – What They Mean to Your Medical Practice
Comparative Billing Reports (CBRs) began hitting mailboxes recently in near epidemic proportions and our phone lines have been lighting up with questions about how to handle them.
Learn what a Comparative Billing Report means to your practice, whether or not you should be concerned, and how to most effectively respond.
During this session, Frank and Sean will provide you with the ins and outs of CBRs and explain their impact on your organization. Learn how to determine whether their findings have merit or they are simply being used as a tool by a CMS contractor to intimidate your providers to select lower-levels of E&M Service or lower RVU producing procedures in an effort to save CMS money!
Frank will first walk you through sample reports, explaining the math and statistics behind the numbers reported as only a healthcare analyst and statistician could. Sean, a leading expert in audits and appeals, will then show you the best way to respond to the CBRs that you are receiving and the best approach for corrective action, if needed.
Don’t be intimidated by CBRs!
Join us, Thursday, August 4, 2016, at 2:00 p.m. ET for this one-hour webinar. Our CEU application is pending, but we expect to offer 1.0 CEUs for this session.
About Comparative Billing Reports (from CMS)
A Comparative Billing Report (CBR) provides comparative billing data to an individual health care provider. CBR’s contain actual data-driven tables and graphs with an explanation of findings that compare provider’s billing and payment patterns to those of their peers on both a national and state level. Graphic presentations contained in these reports help to communicate a provider’s billing pattern more clearly. CBR study topic(s) are selected because they are prone to improper payments. For additional information and examples of CBRs, you can access the eGlobalTech website at https://www.cbrinfo.net/
