The ASCQR Program exists to promote higher quality, more efficient health care in the ASC setting for Medicare beneficiaries through quality of care measurement, quality improvement, and information transparency through public reporting. Under this program, quality data reporting requirements for care rendered in the ASC setting were implemented starting with claims submitted for services beginning October 1, 2012.
