BILL NUMBER:S3154 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the public health law, in relation to payment for services performed in an office-based surgical facility PURPOSE: To require health plans to provide payment to a physician for the use of the office-based surgical facility in the performance of medically necessary procedures performed in accredited office-based practices. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: This bill amends Section 230-d of the public health law to require a health plan to provide reimbursement to physician for the use of the office-based surgical facility in addition to the fee charged for the performance of a medically necessary procedure involving a health plan enrollee or insured, provided that such office-based surgical facility has achieved accredited status as required by Section 230-d(2). EXISTING LAW: Current law requires physicians in whose practice office-based surgery is performed to obtain and maintain full accredited status by a nationally-recognized accredited agency approved by the Commissioner of Health. There are three accreditation entities which have been approved by the Commissioner: Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC), American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF) and The Joint Commission.
