CMS RELEASES 2014 MEDICARE PHYSICIAN CLAIMS DATA

05/11/2016 7:33 AM | Rebekah Francis (Administrator)

For the third time, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released updated Medicare physician claims data on their website, which includes information on 986,000 providers who received $91 billion in Medicare fee-for-service payments in 2014. This “Medicare Provider Utilization and Payment Data: Physician and Other Supplier File” contains specific information on utilization, payment (allowed amount and Medicare payment), and submitted charges organized by National Provider Identifier, HCPCS code and place of service. It allows for comparisons by physician, specialty, location, types of medical services and procedures delivered, Medicare payment and submitted charges. While the 2014 data is similar to the 2013 data released last year, CMS made a few modifications, such as adding the Medicare standardized payment amount, which removes geographic differences in payment rates for individual services and makes Medicare payments across geographic areas comparable.
