Enhancements to PRRB Smart Chart

The PRRB Smart Chart has been enhanced to include two versions, allowing easy access to decisions by Topic or Provider/Group name:
PRRB Smart Chart—By Topic
PRRB Smart Chart—By Provider or Group Name

The Provider Reimbursement Review Board, which is under the administration of CMS, conducts hearings and renders decisions on cost report appeals from Medicare providers, such as hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, home health agencies, and hospices. Decisions of the PRRB are reviewable by the CMS Administrator and by the courts.

The PRRB Smart Chart is available when your IntelliConnect subscription includes the Medicare and Medicaid Guide . The Smart Chart is designed to help you quickly find and track PRRB decisions, from 2003 to the present, on health care topics, as well as subsequent related decisions by the CMS Administrator and the federal courts.

The newly updated PRRB Smart Chart is another example of why the Medicare and Medicaid Guide, especially as available on IntelliConnect, is the “go-to” resource for timely primary source information and analysis relating to the Medicare and Medicaid programs. (You can find the PRRB Smart Chart on the IntelliConnect Browse Tree menu within Medicare and Medicaid Guide, Medicare and Medicaid Toolkit).
