How does an ambulatory surgery center bill for services?

Ambulatory surgery centers must submit bills for services on a national standard form specified by the department of labor and industries.

Special billing policies for ambulatory surgery centers are in the Medical Aid Rules and Fee Schedules under Ambulatory Surgery Center Payment Policies.
