    Default ASC billing ??

    AAPC: Back to School
    We are a general surgeons office and our surgeons are going to start doing surgeries out of a Surgical Center. Where can I find ASC information on billing and setting up the hcfa form correctly? Thanks for any info

    Usually, Becker's ASC is a good source for ASC info. Their website is www.beckersasc.com. I get alot of good up to date info from there for both billing and coding. Another good source is The Coding Institute, website www.codinginstitute.com. They have free articles too which are good.

    Also, be sure to take a look at CMS's ASC center at http://www.cms.gov/center/asc.asp and also at the Claims Processing Manual's Chapter 14 at http://www.cms.gov/Manuals/iom/itemd...tNumPerPage=10
