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. Bills also may be submitted electronically using department file format specifications. Providers must follow the instructions in the General Provider Billing Manual and Billing Instructions. Special billing policies for ambulatory surgery centers are in the Medical Aid Rules and Fee Schedules under Ambulatory Surgery Center Payment Policies.
