Ambulatory Surgical Centers
Saphier and Heller's work for ambulatory surgical centers (often referred to as surgery centers, surgicenters, and ASCs) includes assistance in start-up ventures, including compliance with state licensing laws and the requirements of the Medicare program. Our ASC work has included both physician office based ASCs as well as free-standing licensed ASCs.
We provide advice regarding Medicare safe harbor rules, and we assist with the organization of ASC entities with investments by physicians and other investors.
Many of the issues arising in ASC projects are similar to those addressed in clinics and urgent care center projects. Additionally, please see PRACTICE AREAS in this website for other types of work that we do for ambulatory surgical centers.
