In a May 17 message, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced it will release a Comparative Billing Report (CBR) addressing Evaluation and Management Services on June 4. The reports will be produced by SafeGuard Services, the CMS contract company that released Comparative Billing Reports about sleep services in 2011. A sample of the Evaluation and Management Comparative Billing Report is available on the SafeGuard website.
Members who receive an Evaluation and Management Comparative Billing Report should review it in detail for accuracy and contact SafeGuard Services to resolve any discrepancies. The SafeGuard Services Help Desk can be reached at 530-896-7080.
