CMS recently announced that, beginning this month, they will switch from quarterly data feeds to monthly data feeds for Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR). For MedBen Analytics clients, this means the reporting in our portal will be even more current, allowing them to follow a patient's care path within about one month of the provided service.
Once the switch to monthly data has been implemented, it will be immediately integrated into your MedBen Analytics reports, with no additional action needed on your end. Naturally, the thoroughness of information available will be based upon the timely filing of claims by the provider... if the filing process is delayed, the reports may not reflect all claims activity for the period selected.
Additionally, CMS and Mathematica are in the process of revising the methodology to impute standardized payments. This calculation correction, and the related specification document, is scheduled to be delivered in the March 2017 data feed.
As MedBen Analytics is designed to help providers make decisions based on the most complete and up-to-date information available, we're pleased that CMS has made this change. If you have any questions about the switch to monthly production or our reporting portal, please call MedBen President & COO Kurt Harden at 888-633-2364 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
