Welcome to CBR Resources

This is the official site for information, training and support related to Comparative Billing Reports (CBRs).

CBRs are disseminated to the Medicare provider community to provide insight into Medicare policy and regional billing trends. The CBRs that are distributed to the provider community contain an analysis of billing practices across geographic and service areas. Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) have been producing and disseminating comparative billing reports to providers in their jurisdiction as part of their provider education efforts for many years. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has formalized and expanded the program to the national level.

A CBR will present the results of statistical analyses that compare an individual provider’s billing practices for a specific billing code or policy group with the billing practices of that provider’s peer groups and national averages. Each CBR is unique to a single provider and is only available to that individual provider. CBRs are not publicly available.


Please note: Policy guidance cited in published CBRs and PEPPERs are based on non-public health emergency Medicare rules. Please check with your Medicare Administrative Contractor to determine if a particular service or supply is impacted by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. The CARES Act, published in March 2020, addresses Medicare flexibilities related to the COVID-19 crisis.
