Caryl Serbin Pens Column on ASC Implant Reimbursement for Becker's ASC Review

Caryl Serbin, RN, BSN, LHRM, President & Founder of Serbin Medical Billing, has contributed a column to Becker's ASC Review on how to improve ASC implant reimbursement.

Topics covered include the following:

  • Tracking reimbursement
  • Negotiating better reimbursement
  • Carve-outs
  • Minimum requirements
  • Proper coding
  • Avoiding denials
  • Supplier negotiation

As Caryl writes, "If payors don't cover costly implants adequately, ASCs may lose money on procedures that require them. Facilities face a negative impact on business and revenue if they must advise providers and patients that the facility doesn't offer services requiring implants or continue to perform these procedures at a loss."
