The Medicare 2012 Payments Dataset has wealth of information

This payments dataset contains information identifying the healthcare provider (name, address, credentials, provider_type, Medicare Participation status) and  detailed information about every Medicare procedure code payment connected to these providers (HCPCS code, number of services, number of unique beneficiaries serviced, and the payment charges submitted, average Medicare payments allowed and paid for each of these charges).

A physician or healthcare provider who bills Medicare for services can make use of this information to assess comparative patterns of coding and payments in his or her locality (zipcode area or city, for example) to focus on improving practice revenues.

Here are examples of sample reports:

Mission Statement

CPT(*) or HCPCS procedural coding is how physicians and healthcare providers are paid.  Up until about 2014, physicians and healthcare providers have had only limited access to information about coding and payments.

The release of the  9 million line Medicare Payments  database in April of 2014 opens up this playing field and makes available information about submitted charges and Medicare payments for every physician and healthcare provider, broken down by CPT/HCPCS codes for the 2012 payments year.

Medical Coding Analytics uses advanced analytic methods to help physicians and healthcare providers to identify opportunities for increased revenue in their practices by giving them comparative and proprietary analytic information about coding and payments in their specialty and in their area.

Comparative Coding information includes:

  • Summary information for the Top Medicare Revenue producers in your area including revenue breakdown by Code Catetories and Individual HCPCS codes.
