This has taken the billing charges for ASC’s on a higher side, owing to the number of procedures for various specialties catered to. Based on a recent Industry overview, it has been reported that, Ophthalmology makes up the largest percentage of procedures performed in ambulatory surgery centers. Ophthalmology, GI & Pain management are all thought of as high volume but low reimbursements and remain a stalwart for ASCs for several reasons. Orthopedics is affected more by commercial reimbursement, and in ASCs yields a sizable volume and the highest average reimbursement.
