Medicare utilization numbers for physicians

Looking for Medicare utilization statistics? You can go to the CMS website and download the files here:




This is the link for the Medicare Part B physician file.  There are also other files available by State.  If you go to Medicare, Statistics and reports, the page has a number of options.  On the lower right side of the screen check there are three separate areas to check.  Medicare Health Plan Reports and Files, Medicare Fee for Service (Has both Part A and B) and Medicare Program Rates and Statistics.  Many of the files are extremely large and cannot be opened in an Excel worksheet and have to be put into a database program such as Access.  If you are looking for E&M code specifically, they are at the bottom of the page on the link.
