Skyline Endoscopy Center is licensed by the state health department. Obtaining a license requires strict adherence to state regulations.
We are also certified by the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). ASCs with these certifications are regularly surveyed for compliance to regulations.
Certification by Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)
For an ASC to receive reimbursement for services provided to Medicare or Medicaid recipients, the ASC must be certified by CMS. Obtaining certification requires the same strict adherence to federal regulations outlined in Code for Federal Regulations, Title 42, Chapter IV, Subchapter B, Part 416. To qualify for certification, the ASC is evaluated for compliance to regulations by undergoing an unannounced survey. A plan of correction is required to address any non-compliance to regulations.
