Medicare program; additions and deletions from the current list of covered surgical procedures for ambulatory surgical centers--HCFA. Final notice



Medicare program; additions and deletions from the current list of covered surgical procedures for ambulatory surgical centers--HCFA. Final notice



Federal Register 54(104): 23540-7



This final notice announces additions and deletions to the current list of surgical procedures for which facility services are covered when the procedures are performed in an ambulatory surgical center (ASC). We are adding one procedure and deleting 48 procedures. The changes contained in this final notice result from our consideration of the public comments received in response to a proposed notice published on August 11, 1987 and from analysis of more recent data and subsequent consultation with medical organizations and professional societies. This notice implements section 1833(i)(1) of the Social Security Act, as amended by section 9343 of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1986 that requires, in part, that the list of covered ASC procedures be reviewed and updated every 2 years.
