Provider Data Summary (PDS) request
The PDS is a free comprehensive billing report that helps identify potential Medicare billing issues through a detailed analysis of billing patterns in comparison with those of similar provider types. This report will assist in enhancing the accuracy and efficiency of your Medicare billing process.
Access the PDS report through the Secure Provider Online Portal (SPOT) by following these instructions:
• If you do not have a SPOT account, view instructions for the two-part registration process:
• Part I: Create an EIDM account -- it’s all about you: Your name, SSN, home address, telephone, and email address – no approval required
• Part II: Request access to SPOT -- it’s all about the organization: Billing provider’s NPI/PTAN/TIN, practice official name/role, line of business address – approval required
2. Under ‘Access Reports’ from the top navigation menu, select ‘Provider Data Summary’ (PDS)
3. The PDS Request page will appear
4. Enter the following data report parameters:
• In the Month 1 and Month 2 drop-down menus, select which month of data you would like to view
• Note: You may select any month in the dropdowns. If you select only from the Month 1 dropdown, you will be presented with only that month's information.
• Message codes to display: Users may select any number, from “1” through “20”
5. Click the ‘Data Summary’ button to initiate report request
6. The PDS request results page will appear.
Please refer to section 6.5 of the SPOT User Guide for additional assistance with PDS reports.
