Citing a 26.3-percent improper payment rate for durable medical equipment, prosthetics, orthotics, and supplies (DMEPOS), the contractor for CMS that issues Comparative Billing Reports (CBRs) announced a new CBR for “Orthoses Referring Providers.”

As noted by the contractor, “A CBR is an educational tool that reflects your billing patterns as compared to your peers’ patterns for the same services in your state and/or nationwide. The CBR is intended to enhance accurate billing practices and support providers’ internal compliance activities.” This CBR is focused on HCPCS codes for off-the-shelf and custom-fitted prefabricated orthoses products.

The contractor has announced a webinar on the topic for January 6, 2021. Click here to registerDraft slides for webinar can be accessed here. Additional information can be found on the main CBR webpage.
