AdvaMed Submits Comments on CY 2023 OPPS/ASC Proposed Rule

On September 13, AdvaMed submitted comments to CMS on the CY 2023 Hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment System (OPPS) and Ambulatory Surgical Center (ASC) Payment System proposed rule. In this comment letter, AdvaMed expressed support for improvements to both the OPPS and ASC Payment System to better reflect the costs of innovative medical technology, such as CMS’ proposal to increase payment for certain code combinations within the ASC payment system, and responded to CMS requests for comment on payment for software as a service and Rural Emergency Hospital Quality Reporting Program measures. AdvaMed also continued to advocate for further improvements to CMS’ payment systems, including improvements to the Transitional Passthrough Payment program.
