Prepublication Notice

HFAP has submitted revisions to the Ambulatory Surgery Center manual for approval from CMS. The revisions are the result of the CMS Final Rules published in the September 30, 2019 edition of the Federal Register.

These changes are tentatively projected to become effective for surveys on or after May 4, 2020. When an effective date is set, we will notify all customers and include the final version of the manual.
