    Default CMS Bell Curve

    AAPC: Back to School
    Good morning,
    is there a website where I can get my physician's bell curve compared to the national Medicare averages?

    I don't know of any website, but there are books. I use MGMA Coding Profile Sourcebook. They are quite pricey though. Good luck.

    You can get the numbers from the CMS website for free. If you can run reports in your office and are handy with an excel spread sheet, you can make up some comparative graphs on your own. I just did this last week.
    if you need any help please feel free to email me directly and I will help any way I can...lou2lin@sbcglobal.net

    If you need comparison of E&M services, here is the link to CMS 2008 CY data: http://www.cms.gov/MedicareFeeforSvc...es&next=Accept

    As Linda said above, you can easily make your own excel sheets and create your bell curve from the data related to your specialty. You will need to total the number of services in each category of E&M and calculate the percentages.
