The CBSA Medicare Database (Core-Based Statistical Areas) contains Medicare CBSA Codes, based on county, and assigned per ZIP Code. If a ZIP Code crosses multiple counties, our database provides a record for each instance.
Our CBSA Medicare Database (Core-Based Statistical Areas) are frequently used to file accurate Medicare claims and to verify applicable incentives using a patient’s ZIP Code, such as the Medicare Home Health Rural Add-on Incentive.
Medicare uses "CMS CBSA Codes" that are not identical to standard CBSA Codes. While they are based on the same CBSA database, CMS CBSA's insert exceptions and nuances regarding rural or smaller towns. Our database applies these differences. Our CBSA Medicare Database lists Medicare CBSA Codes, by county, and ZIP Code.
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) signed into law in early 2010 gives an additional 3% to payments made for home health services to patients in rural areas. To qualify for this incentive, a patient must live in a rural area indicated by Medicare CBSA Codes used by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
