Outpatient Utilization and Payment Data 2015

$179 / year

The dataset includes estimated hospital-specific charges for select Ambulatory Payment Classification (APC) Groups paid under the Medicare Outpatient Prospective Payment System (OPPS) for Calendar Year 2015.

Complexity

The Outpatient Utilization and Payment Data Public Use File includes data on Medicare fee-for-service beneficiaries from Medicare Outpatient Prospective Payment System (OPPS) providers within 49 of the 50 United States and District of Columbia (excluding Maryland) with a known Hospital Referral Region (HRR) who are billing for select APCs. The utilization and spending data is aggregated to the following levels: a) the provider identifier, and b) Ambulatory Payment Classification (APC) Group. The provider identifier is the numeric CMS Certification Number (CCN) assigned to a Medicare certified facility. There can be multiple records for a given provider identifier based on the number of distinct APC codes that were billed. APCs are the main unit of payment under the OPPS. CMS assigns individual services (Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System [HCPCS] codes) to APCs based on similar clinical characteristics and
similar costs. The payment rate and copayment calculated for an APC apply to each service within the APC. For utilization, the number of outpatient services billed by the provider and used in the analysis for each APC is provided. In addition, the provider’s average total estimated submitted charges and average total payments within APC are also provided. Total payments consist of Medicare payments and beneficiary cost-share payments. The Medicare payment amount includes the APC payment amount, the beneficiary Part B coinsurance amount and the beneficiary deductible amount. For these APCs, the estimated average charges and the average Medicare payments are provided at the individual hospital level. The actual charges at an individual hospital for an individual service within these APC groups may differ
