3 ways managed care organizations could promote ASC use

Managed care organizations are focused on finding ways to encourage ASC utilization, according to L.E.K. Consulting.

Three ways MCOs are promoting ASC use:

1. Seeking ASC partners with scaled networks that cover a substantial portion of their membership footprint

2. Increasing the professional fee portion of the ASC reimbursement rate to augment physician payments while keeping total procedure costs low

3. Reducing out-of-network procedure volume as payers adjust benefit structures
