When CMS issued the 2014 proposed payment rule for ASCs in July, it not only outlined its planned reimbursement rate changes, the agency also included a number of other significant proposed changes ASCs need to know about concerning Medicare's ASC Quality Reporting Program.

During this program, ASCA consultant Jonathan Beal, Esq., will discuss

  • The four new measures CMS will likely include in its quality reporting program

  • CMS's plans for penalizing ASCs that fail to successfully report quality measures

  • Steps ASCs should take to avoid these penalties

  • Effects of the proposed Medicare reimbursement rate changes on different specialties

  • Strategies to prepare for these rate changes
