The Sixth Edition of Ambulatory Surgery Centers: Legal and Regulatory Issues addresses the unique nature of ASCs, emphasizing their physical and organizational separation from other providers, regardless of whether they are owned by a hospital, a physician practice, or other entity. In this edition, the authors address the history behind the development of ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) and their rapid growth since Medicare approved payments to them in 1982. Today there are more than 6,000 ASCs operating in this country.

All health attorneys and others in the health care field who need to understand the unique nature of ASCs should welcome the unparalleled guidance provided here by leading experts in the field.

The authors adeptly explore:

  • Physical and organizational differences between ASCs and other providers
  • Trends and tensions facing ASCs — such as conflicts between ASCs, hospitals, and physicians
  • Federal and state fraud and abuse laws and their implications
  • Analysis of ASC reimbursement 
  • All new chapter on compliance, with downloadable revised and updated compliance plan

The title includes a sample compliance plan for ASC, and an operating agreement, among other exhibits. The exhibits are available for download to both print and eBook purchasers.

The eBook versions of this title feature links to Lexis Advance for further legal research options.
