Medicare Provider Utilization and Payment Data: Physician and Other Supplier

A public data set, the Medicare Provider Utilization and Payment Data: Physician and Other Supplier Public Use File (Physician and Other Supplier PUF), with 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’s National Claims History Standard Analytic Files. The data in the Physician and Other Supplier PUF covers calendar year 2012 and contains 100% final-action physician/supplier Part B non-institutional line items for the Medicare fee-for-service population.

ProQuest International Datasets is a collection of public and private data sets from national governments, international organizations, and research firms. A focus of this resource is sub-national data for the countries of the world (data by country, city, state, or province). Country-level data is generally available going back 35 years and city-level data generally covers 15-20 years.
