Rules for ASC

  1. #1
    Default Rules for ASC
    Exam Training Packages
    We are new to ASC billing / coding. Can anyone offer resources on coding rules for ASC and billing rules for ASC.

    we would like to know "how" things get billed at ASC's ? Do you actually bill a cpt code?

    any info...like a good resource book....website would be greatly helpful

    Hi,

    I don't know what state you're in, but you can start with
    http://www.ascassociation.org/
    They have a lot of wonderful free information and you can also find your state ASC association and contact them regarding upcoming meetings and training opportunities.
    I would also sign up for Becker's ASC newsletter. Also free and sent via email. It's a terrific resource as well.
    Be careful not to use Medicare/CMS guidelines when you're coding for your commercial and work comp payers. They are often VERY different and using Medicare guidelines will lose your ASC quite a bit of money.
    Good luck!
    Melanie
