98% of ASCs to receive full 2014 payment updates
98% of ambulatory surgery centers participating in the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Ambulatory Surgery Center Quality Reporting Program have met the program requirements and will receive the full 1.8% annual payment update for the 2014 calendar year.
ASCs that met the 2014 quality program requirements can be found on CMS’s QualityNet website.
The ASCs that did not meet program requirements should have received a notification letter in November from CMS and are facing a 2% reduction in annual payments for calendar year 2014. ASCs needing assistance with their quality reporting program can contact the program support contractor via the QualityNet customer help page.
