Medicare Provider Utilization and Payment Data: Physician and Other Supplier

The Physician and Other Supplier Public Use File (Physician and Other Supplier 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 Physician and Other Supplier PUF covers calendar years 2012 through 2014 and contains 100% final-action physician/supplier Part B non-institutional line items for the Medicare fee-for-service population.

How to Prevent Medicare Card Identity Theft

A. People new to Medicare are often shocked to learn that the ID number on their Medicare card is identical to their Social Security number (SSN). After all, we’re constantly warned not to carry our SSNs around with us. If our cards are lost or lifted, a criminal can use those numbers to get other personal information about us and commit identity theft — an especially vicious form of fraud that snared more than 11.6 million victims last year.

Locating an Individual Provider Transaction Access Number (PTAN)

“The contractor shall not send an individual’s provider transaction access numbers (PTAN) to a group or organization (including the group’s authorized or delegated official). If a group/organization needs to know an individual provider’s PTAN, it must contact the provider directly for this information or have the individual provider request this information in writing from the contractor. If the individual provider requests his/her PTAN number, the contractor can mail it to the provider’s practice location. The contractor should never give this information over the phone.”
