The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has announced it will grant exceptions for Medicare quality reporting requirements to ASCs in areas affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, according to the Ambulatory Surgery Center Association (ASCA).
ASCs will receive exceptions without having to submit an extraordinary circumstances exception (ECE) request if they are located in counties, parishes, municipios or county-equivalents designated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as a major disaster location.
ASCs located outside of the designated areas may submit ECE requests based on individual circumstances.
