Spine and Beyond: Moving Procedures to the ASC Setting

January 20, 2015

Spine is one of the fastest growing specialties in ASCs, and this year, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services added 11 new spine codes to the ASC-payable list. If your ASC has plans to add spine cases or already has a spine program, you won't want to miss ASCA's next webinar "Spine and Beyond: Moving Procedures to the ASC Setting." This program will be offered Tuesday, January 27, at 1:00 pm ET.

Spine surgeon Kenneth A. Pettine, MD, and ASCA Regulatory Counsel Kara Newbury will:

  • Discuss the economics of Medicare spine cases in an ASC

  • Explain how to provide safe, efficient spine care to patients

  • Review the process for adding spine codes to Medicare’s ASC-payable list

  • Identify other spine codes ASCA is advocating for this year and

  • Describe what ASCs can do to help get more codes added to the list
