CBR022 Home Health Payment by Episode Information Updated on CBR Website

CBR services, a division of Safeguard Services, posted updated information contained in the Comparative Billing Report (CBR) on home health visits by episode on its website. CBRs are produced under contract with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. The intent of this service is to provide data-driven tables and graphs that compare a provider’s billing and payment patterns with those of their peers located in their state and the nation.

The information can be found on CBR’s website at http://www.cbrservices.com in the section under the heading, “Comparative Billing Report on Home Health Services by Episode”. These reports should be viewed with two facts in mind:

  1. Table 2 therapy utilization is limited to therapy in episodes where a patient had at least 1 therapy visit for that discipline.
  2. Table 3 Medicare Payment is based on wage index adjusted, case-mix adjusted average episode payments.
