  1. Lawmakers Reintroduce Bill to Increase Access to ASCs

    Four lawmakers have reintroduced legislation to increase Medicare beneficiaries’ access to affordable outpatient surgical care. Sens. Bill Cassidy, MD, and Richard Blumenthal along with Reps. Brad Wenstrup, DPM, and John Larson are working to pass the Outpatient Surgery Quality and Access Act.

    The goal of the bill is to close the reimbursement gap between hospital outpatient departments and ASCs, end copay penalties for Medicare beneficiaries, address barriers to affordable and quality care, and increase transparency about CMS’ procedure coverage at ASCs, according to a news release from Dr. Cassidy’s office.
