Class A office-based surgery suites permit use of Class A sedatives such as Valium, Ativan or other non-dissociative drugs with no IV sedation on ASA 1 or 2 patients. The suite is considered part of your office and doesn’t require any licensing by the state and iOR Partners will develop the suite to AAAASF standards. Commercial insurance, Medicare Advantage and cash pay patients are appropriate in a Class A office suite. The Medicare Facility Fee cannot be collected; however, you can bill for the Professional Fee. No dedicated pre-op or post-op area is necessary, and the surgery suite is incorporated within the current clinic space, often without any additional construction. LASIK suites and most existing procedure rooms can be converted for office-based surgery.
Class B office-based surgery suite permits use of IV sedation and dissociative drugs under the supervision of a RN, CRNA or Anesthesiologist. Patients with co-morbidities, such as uncontrolled hypertension or diabetes can, on the physician’s discretion, be performed in the office when appropriate. Commercial insurance, Medicare Advantage and cash pay patients are appropriate in a Class A office suite. The Medicare Facility Fee cannot be collected; however, you can bill for the Anesthesia and the Professional Fee. The suite would be accredited by AAAASF and the operating room, including the pre-op and post-op areas, are separated by space from the general office. The post-op area is supervised by an RN and at least one other staff member. Patient monitoring equipment is needed in post-op.
