We have an orthopaedic surgeon interested in doing these procedures in our ASC. Are any ASCs doing these now? Do the patients stay for 23 hour recovery? Are you getting paid?:confused:

yes ASC's are doing them now, Medicare also has a payment indicator of G2 for this procedure now. It will be VERY important to check your contracts for coverage. Yes the patient will more than likely require a 23h obs. (side note: my guys do total knees in an ASC setting to, of course the ASC is credentialed for up to 72 hr stays. Only some commercial payors will allow this.)
