Why do hospitals establish provider-based clinics? Do you know what advantages physicians have for being in a provider-based clinic? Why are there ambiguities in the provider-based rule (PBR)?
Physician supervision recently has become a big issue and the CMS has changed the supervision requirements over the last few years. CMSâs physician supervision requirements under the Provider-Based Rule (42 CFR Â§413.65) continue to be an area of uncertainty and confusion for many Provider-Based Clinics. To make matters worse, the rules differ depending on the type of service (s) provided. Following physician supervision requirements is crucial for compliance and reimbursement. Services not meeting applicable guidelines are considered ânot reasonable and necessary,â and are ineligible for Medicare payments.

Abbey, Ph.D., will review the PBR based rule and CMSâ requirements, brief the economic advantages of provider-based clinics, and explain affirmative steps hospitals must take to ensure compliance.
