Text of CMS Medicare Provider Utilization and Payment Data: Part D Prescriber
Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services [CMS], U.S. Department of Health and Human Services [HHS]Link to more items from this source
Apr. 30, 2015

"The new [Medicare Provider Utilization and Payment Data: Part D Prescriber] dataset identifies providers using their National Provider Identifier (NPI) and the specific prescriptions that were dispensed on their behalf, listed by brand name (if applicable) and generic name. For each prescriber and drug, the dataset includes the total number of prescriptions that were dispensed, which include original prescriptions and any refills, and the total drug cost. The total drug cost includes the ingredient cost of the medication, dispensing fees, sales tax, and any applicable administration fees and is based on the amount paid by the Part D plan, Medicare beneficiary, government subsidies, and any other third-party payors.... CMS has also created three types of summary tables: [1] a prescriber level summary, [2] a drug level-summary at the national level, and [3] a drug level-summary at the state level." [Also available: CMS Fact Sheet describing this first-ever release of prescription drug data.]
