Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Adopts New Policy Permitting Release of Physician Medicare Billing Data to the Public

A Health Care Insight by Washington, D.C., partner Jesse Witten was published in Med Monthly medical magazine on Feb. 28, 2014.

Under this policy, researchers – and data miners of all sorts – may gain access to previously unavailable information on physician coding and billing patterns.
