Hospital: Physicians’ Administrative Compensation Data

The Hospital: Physicians’ Administrative Compensation Data Subscription provides raw compensation data for administrative physician compensation arrangements reported by thousands of U.S. hospitals participating in Medicare and Medicaid.

Hospitals are required to identify compensation paid to physicians for administrative services on Medicare cost report worksheet A-8-2. If time logs are not kept by the physicians, then reporting hospitals perform two-week time studies twice each year to identify the amount of time physicians spend on administrative duties, which are signed by the physician and a hospital official. Under federal law, hospitals are required to retain their time record documentation for four years (§415.60(g)).

HCTadvisor is licensing 12-month data subscriptions for hospital cost report worksheet A-8-2 data with quarterly updates.page-break
