Facility Type Code for ASC'S

    Default Facility Type Code for ASC'S
    Medical Coding Books
    Does anyone know what the new facility type code for freestanding ASC'S is for workers compensation claims? Liberty Mutual WC told us that the code has changed from 831 to _31 but wouldn't tell us what number replaces the 8.

    This sounds like a stall tactic to me but I need to investigate anyway. Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Terri

    I have not heard anything about this?? I did check the ASC site and didnt see anything about it there either. I would ask them to fax you something in writing showing you the effective date of the change and by what governing body.

    If anyone else has info it woul dbe greatly appreciated too
