AMBULATORY SURGICAL CENTER (ASC) means a facility which operates exclusively for the purpose of providing surgical services to patients not requiring hospitalization and for patients who are not expected to require more than a total of 23 hours for preparation, the surgery itself and for recovery.
Businesses must apply for facility license BEFORE accepting patients. License: $150 yearly. Each facility must have at least one fully-equipped operating room; an area for preparing patients, x-ray equipment, clinical labratory services and a patient recovery room. For more information on health facility licensing requirements, please visit: http://www.cdphe.state.co.us/regulations/healthfacilities/index.html
The Division, under the direction of the U.S. Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA), also determines eligibility of the facility for Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement certification. Contact HFD for further information is you wish your facility to be eligible.

NOTE:  The term does NOT include: A) a facility that is licensed as part of a hospital, or B) a facility which is used as an office or clinic for the private practice of a physician(s), podiatrist or dentist except when: 1) it holds itself out to the public or other health care providers as an ASC or similar facility, or 2) it is operated or used by a person or entity different than the physician(s), or 3) patients are charged a fee for use of the facility in addition to the physician’s professional services; unless such fees are an integrated part of the office based surgery program incentive allowance of a licensed sickness and accident insurer, a non-profit hospital, a medical-surgical and health service corporation, or a health maintenance organization and the program incentive occurs in a setting that does not require licensure.
NOTE:  Offering multiple health services in the same building does not preclude or exempt a facility from meeting the requirements. The building space constituting the ambulatory surgical center must be used exclusively for ambulatory surgery and its directly related services. The other health services being offered in the same building must be physically separated from the ambulatory surgical center.
NOTE:  If applicable, see INFECTIOUS WASTE DISPOSAL
