Sections 109(b) of the Tax Relief and Health Care Act of 2006 (TRHCA) (Pub. L. 109-432) amended section 1833(i) of the Social Security Act by re-designating clause (iv) as clause (v) and adding new clause (iv) to paragraph (2)(D) and adding new paragraph (7). Section 1833(i)(2)(D)(iv) of the Act authorizes, but does not require, the Secretary to implement the revised ASC payment system “in a manner so as to provide for a reduction in any annual update for failure to report on quality measures in accordance with paragraph (7).” Section 1833(i)(7)(B) of the Social Security Act provides that, except as the Secretary may otherwise provide, the hospital outpatient quality data provisions of subparagraphs (B) through (E) of section 1833(t)(17) of the Act shall apply to ASCs in a similar manner to the manner in which they apply under these paragraphs to hospitals under the Hospital Outpatient Quality Reporting Program. Importantly, section 1833(t)(17)(B) of the Act requires that hospitals (or in this instance, ambulatory surgical centers) submit quality data in a form and manner, and at a time, that the Secretary specifies, or incur a reduction in their annual payment update by 2.0 percentage points.

Miscellaneous Actions
Accounting for the increase of 1,152 in ASCs from 3,494 to 4646, the proposal to resume and require data collection for the ASC-1, ASC-2, ASC-3, and ASC-4 measures increases burden from 176,096 hours to 179,194 hours; an increase of 3,098 hours (0.1667 hours/measure x 4 measures x 4,646 ASCs) at a cost of $131,355 (3,098 hours x $42.40). Also, the proposal to require data collection for the ASC-11 measure will result in the remaining 80% of ASCs we previously assumed were not reporting voluntarily to report beginning with the CY 2025 payment determination. Therefore, this proposal increases burden by 60,088 hours (75,110 hours x 80%) at a cost of $2,547,731 ($3,184,664 x 80%). The total number of responses for ASC-1 to 4, ASC-9, ASC-11, ASC-13, and 14 will be (From Tables 2 and 3) 1,189,376 (18,584 + 1,170,792).
