Medicare Quality Reporting:

Note that all ASCs must participate in Medicare Quality Reporting to avoid payment penalties.  The deadline for reporting ASC-8, 9 and 10 is May 15, 2018 to avoid a negative impact on your 2020 Medicare Rates.  Signing up for these programs is both complex and time consuming and you need to act fast if you have not already signed up to report.
