Ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) are modern health care facilities that offer same-day surgical care, including diagnostic and preventive procedures. Learn about the high-quality care and savings that ASCs provide, and find a facility near you.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has released the 2019 Proposed Medicare Payment Rule for ASCs and hospital outpatient departments (HOPDs).
