Frequently Asked Questions

Provider Ranking System (PRS) by Denniston Data is designed to help identify high-performing medical providers to lower healthcare costs through improved health outcomes. The system ranks and compares doctors by frequency of treatments they perform using evidence-based data from the U.S. government database, including repeat procedures and billable and allowable costs. No paid listings, no opinions. Just the facts speak for themselves.

PRS is for those responsible for any of the following:

  • Case managers and/or physicians for medical referrals
  • Marketers of pharmaceutical companies or medical device companies who need to find high ranking physicians for new medical device or pharmaceutical research studies
  • Self-insured employers and health insurers to research best doctors and manage their medical provider network
  • Physician credentialing
  • Hospitals for evaluating and/or recruiting doctors
  • Other professionals who need to research healthcare providers for their clients

According to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, “the National Provider Identifier (NPI) is a Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Administrative Standard. An NPI is unique identification number for covered health care providers, created to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of electronic transmission of health information. Covered health care providers and all health plans and health care clearinghouses must use NPIs in their administrative and financial transactions.” For more information, visit here:

Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) is a standardized code system necessary for medical providers to submit healthcare claim to Medicare and other health insurances in a consistent and orderly manner. HCPCS comprises two medical code sets, HCPCS Level I and HCPCS Level II.

According to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, “Level I of the HCPCS is comprised of Current Procedural Terminology (CPT-4), a numeric coding system maintained by the American Medical Association (AMA). The CPT-4 is a uniform coding system consisting of descriptive terms and identifying codes that are used primarily to identify medical services and procedures furnished by physicians and other health care professionals. These health care professionals use the CPT-4 to identify services and procedures for which they bill public or private health insurance programs. Level I of the HCPCS, the CPT-4 codes, does not include codes needed to separately report medical items or services that are regularly billed by suppliers other than physicians.

Level II of the HCPCS is a standardized coding system that is used primarily to identify products, supplies, and services not included in the CPT-4 codes, such as ambulance services and durable medical equipment, prosthetics, orthotics, and supplies (DMEPOS) when used outside a physician’s office. Because Medicare and other insurers cover a variety of services, supplies, and equipment that are not identified by CPT-4 codes, the level II HCPCS codes were established for submitting claims for these items.” For more information, visit here: https://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Coding/MedHCPCSGenInfo/HCPCS_Coding_Questions
