CfC Changes to Single-Use: A Review – Ophthalmology Management

CMS imposes requirements on ASCs, including a set of regulations known as the Conditions for Coverage (CfC). In 2008, the CfCs were changed significantly. However, the changes continue to cause confusion, so this month we will address one aspect: single-use items.

This article answers the following questions:

  • What are CMS’ ASC conditions for coverage?
  • When did the new CfCs take effect?
  • What are CMS’ interpretive guidelines?
  • What are CMS’ instructions concerning single-use devices?
  • What is the significance of this instruction?
  • What about single-dose vials of medications?
  • What is an example of single-use labeling?
