Report
CMS Quality Reporting for ASCs
Gina Throneberry, RN, MBA, CASC, CNOR
Director of Education and Clinical Affairs
Ambulatory Surgery Center Association (ASCA)
Learning Objectives
• Participants will:
• Identify quality reporting by Centers for Medicare
& Medicaid Services (CMS) for Ambulatory
Surgery Centers (ASCs)
• Understand the history of quality measure
development
• Collect and report the data for the required
quality measures
General FAQs about the CMS ASC
Quality Reporting Program
• I would like clarification on the definition of an Ambulatory
Surgical Center (ASC) as it relates to the requirements for the ASC
Quality Reporting Program. My understanding is that only freestanding ASCs that are billing with their own CCN would be
required to submit under that program. Is this correct?
You are correct. ASCs have their own ASC numbers - an
alphanumeric code where the third digit is the letter "C" - and bill
using their own system.
An ASC that is part of a hospital's regional outpatient facility that is
billing under the hospital's CCN would not be included.
The ambulatory surgery cases billed under the hospital's CCN would
be eligible for inclusion in the relevant measures in the Hospital
Outpatient Quality Reporting (OQR) Program. *
*Per www.qualitynet.org
General FAQs about the CMS ASC
Quality Reporting Program
• What is a CCN, and where can I locate it?
A Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)
Certification Number, or CCN, is established by CMS
for each facility and designates the facility as a CMScertified, free standing ASC. Your billing department
should serve as a good resource for locating this
number. An ASC CCN is an alphanumeric 10 digit
number - the first two digits represent the state's
number, and the following letter is a "C." For
example, an ASC in Florida would have a CCN that
looks like "10C000xxxx.“ *

 On November 1, 2011, Medicare released the calendar year
(CY) 2012 Medicare Hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment
System (OPPS)/ ASC Payment final rule (1552 pages)
 The ASC Quality Reporting Program was implemented

General FAQs about the CMS ASC
Quality Reporting Program
• Do we need to include Pre-Admission Testing (PAT)
visits conducted in an ASC for the ASCQR Program?
A visit for PAT is not considered an ASC admission
for purposes of the ASCQR Program.*
• Can we submit claims to correct G codes?
Do not re-submit a claim only for the purpose of
correcting or adding G-codes. Resubmission of
claims should occur only to collect the payment from
the original date of service. *
*Per www.qualitynet.org
General FAQs about the CMS ASC
Quality Reporting Program
• If a patient is admitted to the ASC, but the case is
cancelled before any procedure is performed,
does quality measure data need to be reported
for this case?
If the ASC submits a claim for Medicare
reimbursement for this case, then the appropriate
QDCs should be reported as this claim will be
included in the completeness of reporting
calculation.*

Additional Quality Reporting Info from
the IPPS* Final Rule (July 2012)
• The completeness threshold is set at 50%. Page 1548
• ASCs will be considered successful reporters and
get their full payment if 50% of the relevant claims
contain the quality data codes (2012 and 2013).
• There is a process for an extension in extraordinary
circumstances. Page 1554.
• The reconsideration and appeals process is based on
the one the hospital uses now. Page 1558.
*Inpatient Prospective Payment Systems
Participation and Non Participation
• Once an ASC submits any quality measure data, the
center would be considered participating
• To receive the full annual payment update (APU), an
ASC must meet all program requirements:
• submits quality measure data (i.e., Quality Data Codes
[QDCs]) on the CMS Form 1500
• submits web-based measure data
• The ASC will continue to be considered a participant,
regardless of whether the ASC continues to submit
quality measure data, until formally withdrawing from
the program.
• For ASCs participating in the program, quality measure
data submitted could be made publicly available.
Participation and Non Participation
• An ASC that wishes to withdraw from the ASC Quality
Reporting (ASCQR) Program must fill out an online
withdrawal form:
• Located on the QualityNet website www.qualitynet.org
• Click on left hand side: how to participate then
• Click on left hand side: how to withdraw
• An ASC can withdraw at any time up to August 31 prior
to the payment determination year.
• An ASC that withdraws will incur a 2% reduction in its
Annual Payment Update (APU) and any subsequent
year the ASC is not participating.

Measure Details
Safe Surgery Checklist Use
• Intent: Assess whether an ASC uses a safe surgery
checklist
• May employ any checklist as long as it addresses
effective communication and safe surgery practices
in each of three peri-operative periods:
• prior to administering anesthesia,
• prior to incision, and
• prior to the patient leaving the operating room
• Applies to all ASCs
Measure Details
Safe Surgery Checklist Use
• For 2014 and beyond, the checklist should be
utilized for the ENTIRE year for an answer of
"Yes".
• Report “Yes” or “No” on the Quality Net web
site (www.qualitynet.org) between January 1
through August 15, 2015.
