    Smile billing Medicare ASC

    AAPC: Back to School
    Yesterday I spent hours on the phone with Medicare and on their web site. Do I bill ASC fees to Part B or Part A? Does anyone know how to obtain an existing Medicare Accreditation certificate?

    You bill Part B...for the acreditation I guess you need to call the Medicare Provider Relation line, they would be the one to direct you to the right person to obtain a copy of the certificate, I hope this helps!

    Most ASC's do bill under Medicare Part B, but there are ASC's that bill under Part A. Is your ASC independent or hospital based?

    You bill part B, weird I know! As far as the Accrediation I would assume you go through the website but I have no idea. I just started working for a bariatric practice that owns their own ASC and found it quite odd that the ASC is still billed under part B.
