The Leapfrog Group Partners with The Health Transformation Alliance to Support New ASC Legislation

May 1, 2023

On behalf of our employer constituents, Leapfrog and The Health Transformation Alliance (HTA) sent members of the U.S. Senate a letter of support for the Outpatient Surgery Quality and Access Act of 2023. The bill calls for consumer-friendly comparisons of quality at ASCs and hospitals on CMS Care Compare, and healthy market competition including more fairness in automatic pricing increases—though ASC pricing for procedures would remain significantly lower than hospital-based procedures. The letter also called for more measures of quality and safety in ASCs and for the incorporation of ASCs in value-based payment programs. Find the letter here.
