CBR (Comparative billing report)
The Comparative Billing Report (CBR) for Part A providers furnishes a detailed examination of the comparative data that Medicare considers when determining how the provider’s billing patterns contrast with those of its peer group, which is based upon type of bill (TOB). Use this guide to learn not only how to request a Part A CBR but also how to interpret its results to help improve your organization’s billing efficiency.
Comparative billing report (CBR) information is available to providers and suppliers by request. [CMS Pub 100-08, Medicare Program Integrity Manual, Chapter 3, Section 11.1.6]
