The Most Challenging Issue Facing ASCs Today: Regent Surgical Health's Jeff Simmons

Jeffrey Simmons, chief development officer of Regent Surgical Health, shares his take on the most challenging issues confronting ASCs today:

"The biggest challenge facing ASCs today is deteriorating net revenue per case. Lower reimbursement rates, higher deductibles and larger co-pays all work toward creating the issues. Insurance companies seem to be trying to maintain historical margins and are passing along the higher costs associated with premiums with less attractive benefits, which consumers choose to save money."
