Abstract

In 2014, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services began a now annual process of releasing payment data made to physicians and other providers from Medicare Part B. The unprecedented availability of detailed payment information has generated considerable interest among policymakers, the public, and the media, and raised concerns from a number of physician groups. In the current climate of financial transparency, publication of Medicare payment data will likely continue. In an effort to prepare neurologists for future releases of payment data, we review the background, limitations, potential benefits, and appropriate responses to Medicare payment data releases.
