The 2022 Hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment System and ASC Payment System finalized Nov. 2 removes 255 procedures from the ASC payable list.

CMS moved the procedures to the ASC payable list in the 2021 Hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment System and ASC Payment System final rule, but then reversed its decision for 2022.

"This final rule contains some modest improvements since the proposed rule, but we are disappointed that the agency finalized a decision to reduce beneficiary access to ASCs for a number of important procedures that were added just a year ago, despite CMS having little to no clinical data to use as a basis for removing them from our payable list," said Bill Prentice, Ambulatory Surgery Center Association CEO, in a statement.

He went on to say, "We hope that we can work with the Biden administration in 2022 to make significant, constructive changes to the program so that more Medicare beneficiaries can get care in the ASC setting for the many additional procedures that can be safely performed in ASCs."

Here is a list of the procedure codes that would be removed from the ASC payable list.
