Medicare’s 2015 Physician Utilization Database
The Physician and Other Supplier Public Use File (PUF) provides information on services and procedures provided to Medicare beneficiaries by physicians and other healthcare professionals. The Physician and Other Supplier PUF contains information on utilization, payment (allowed amount and Medicare payment), and submitted charges organized by National Provider Identifier (NPI), Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) code, and place of service. This PUF is based on information from CMS administrative claims data for Medicare beneficiaries enrolled in the fee-for-service program. The data in the PUF covers calendar year 2015. The interactive database can be found at:

HBP also creates customized reports for pathology and other specialties based on the twenty-six fields of the database, including HCPCS code, state and place of service. Interested in what others in your city/state are charging? This information is available by procedure code.
