ASC Quality Reporting Secondary Payor Issue Resolved

The ASC Association recently worked with CMS to adjust the claims processing procedure to make sure ASCs did not experience rejected Medicare claims by secondary payors due to the inclusion of new quality data G codes.

Currently, ASCs can include the quality data G codes on their Medicare claims on a trial basis. Beginning with dates of service on or after Oct. 1, 2012, ASCs will be required to use the quality data G codes on Medicare claims or face future financial penalties.
