This study will help policymakers and system stakeholders better understand the ambulatory surgery center (ASC) payments for common surgeries in their state, how they compare with others, and the role of different types of fee schedules.
The study examines payments for commonly used outpatient surgeries performed at ASCs in 23 large states that represent over two-thirds of the workers’ compensation benefits paid in the United States and covers surgeries in calendar year 2011.
The 23 states in the study are Arizona, California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and Wisconsin.
