What is a provider-based physician practice?
The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) permits physician office clinics to operate as “provider-based” when certain conditions are met. These physician office clinics are integrated into the hospital and are therefore permitted to bill services as a hospital outpatient department to government operated insurance plans. These charges often show up on a statement as “facility charges” which help cover the additional expenses of operating an outpatient department of a hospital compared to a free standing physician office.
