CMS Updates ASC Quality Reporting Specifications Manual

The Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services has released an updated version of its ASC Quality Reporting Specifications Manual, according to ASCA.

The new version states that all surgery centers, regardless of specialty or procedure performed, must report one of the G-codes corresponding to the timing of prophylactic IV antibiotic administration.

The manual states, "CMS requires all facilities to report on the ASC-5 measure for all Medicare fee-for-service patients, even if there is no indication for or order for perioperative antibiotics (G8918)."
