Although books are great...your best resources are regulatory guidance. Below is guidance from CMS, ASC Association, one of the CMS contractors (NHIC), but other contractors publish their guidelines, and the AAPC.

Chapter 14: http://www.cms.hhs.gov/Regulations-and-Guidance/Guidance/Manuals/Internet-Only-Manuals-IOMs-Items/CMS018912.html

http://www.ascassociation.org/Home/

Here's the guide from my contractor: NHIC.....check with your own contractor (not sure where you are) www.medicarenhic.com/.../Ambulatory%20Surgery%20Center%20Billing%20Guide.pdf

There's also an AAPC certification for ASC billing....purchase the study guide for a great overview. http://www.aapc.com/certification/specialty/ambulatory-surgical-center-medical-coding-certification.aspx

Happy reading! Pam
