Reference: Search Medicare Payments to Providers in 2012 (WSJ Interface and Data Sets)
Newly released Medicare billing data show total payments to more than 880,000 medical providers in 2012, totaling $77 billion. Search the database by provider name, specialty and location to see the types and number of procedures performed and the amounts paid to each provider by Medicare.
There is some information CMS hasn’t provided. In some cases, procedures attributed to a specific physician may have been performed by other people under that doctor’s supervision. The data doesn’t include information on patients nor does it show doctors’ billings related to durable medical equipment.
