Thank you for being a valued patient at one of Knox Community Hospital’s employed physician locations. These physician locations now function as part of two separate departments of Knox Community Hospital, the Departments of Primary Care and Specialty Care.
What is Provider Based Billing (PBB)?
PBB refers to the billing process for services rendered in a hospital department or location. This process takes place when the hospital owns space and employs physicians and other support personnel who are involved in patient care.
This benefits patients as all departments of the hospital are subject to rigorous quality standards and are monitored by The Joint Commission, an independent, not-for-profit organization that accredits and certifies more than 17,000 health care organizations and programs in the United States.
Joint Commission accreditation and certification is recognized nationwide as a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to meeting certain performance standards.
NOTE: Provider Based Billing and the information contained on this page pertain to Medicare and Medicaid patients only.
