CMS Releases Update to the ASC Guidance for Surveyors

CMS released a surveyor member that provides updates to the State Operations Manual Appendix L- Guidance for Surveyors: Ambulatory Surgical Centers. 

CMS published multiple final rules over the past several years that amended the ASC Conditions for Coverage (CfC). This Advanced Copy of Appendix L makes conforming revisions to the regulatory tags and interpretive guidelines, as well as clarifications and technical corrections to other guidance areas based on stakeholder feedback.

Please note that since this is an Advanced Copy, it is subject to change slightly before the final copy is posted to the online SOM.
