ASCRS, AAO, and OOSS Meet with CMS Regarding the Proposed Physician Cataract Outcomes Quality Measures Included in the 2014 ASC Proposed Rule; Urge Withdrawal 
Recently, ASCRS joined the AAO and OOSS in a meeting with CMS to express our opposition to the inclusion of two physician cataract surgery outcome measures for ASC quality reporting in the 2014 ASC proposed rule. We outlined our concerns and explained why these measures are inappropriate for the ASC quality reporting program. We also indicated our willingness to work with them to develop appropriate ASC quality measures.
We will continue to keep you updated.
