The OAASC is once again in the process creating a tool which will provide the OAASC membership with a clearer statewide perspective of third party payer payment trends. 

 

As in past years, the Reimbursement Committee has requested generalized reimbursement data from ASCs.  Participating centers have found this information to be valuable to both management staff and leadership. As in any study, the more centers who participate, the better the results, so we hope we can count on your involvement.

 

OAASC leadership has carefully examined the legal requirements of this activity and has taken measures to ensure the survey is constructed properly and the project is executed well within legal boundaries. 

 

To ensure complete legal confidentiality, the surveys will be handled exclusively by an independent consultant.  No member of the Reimbursement Committee will see the confidential information, only the final report.  Please review your contracts to ensure that you can share payer specific information.  There should not be any issue in sharing general CPT level information.

 

The survey is divided into three components:

  1. Most used CPT codes by specialty and average reimbursements for those codes
  2. Generalized payments or reimbursement levels
  3. Reimbursement trends/strategies

 

It will take you approximately 45 minutes - 1 hour to complete.  Helpful reports for you to have as you start the survey include:

  • Procedure summaries
  • Payments by CPT codes
  • Payments by group for each payer
  • General contract information

 

While we know this is an investment of your time, your ASC will benefit significantly from the information produced by the survey.

Among the benefits of the survey:

  • Having current comparisons of reimbursement rates;
  • Using anonymous data to compare private payer rates to Medicare;
  • Having an objective tool to measure your ASC's reimbursement strengths and weaknesses.

 

Please help make this survey and resulting tool a success for Ohio ASCs.

Complete the survey and return it by December 15 via email [email protected] or by fax at 614.467.2071.
