A Rise in Ambulatory Surgery Centers
The fundamental changes in the Medicare reimbursement scheme, coupled with the increasing pressure to streamline healthcare delivery systems, have given rise to a dramatic increase in the development of Ambulatory Surgical Treatment Centers (ASCs or ASTCs) in recent years.
In 1982, the year Medicare first approved reimbursement for ASC procedures, there were approximately 293 ASCs in existence.
Recent surveys indicate that there are currently over 5,500 ASCs nationwide performing nearly 65 percent of all surgeries.
