Join OOSS or renew your membership. We look forward to collaborating with you in 2021. Enjoy the OOSS benefits and support the association as we coalesce to represent the strategic, business, and patient care interests of the ophthalmic ASCs.
OOSS will discuss industry trends, strategies and insight to assess ophthalmic surgery facility patient health and safety considerations (e.g. office-based surgery), business models, investment strategies, and operational strategies.
On September 27, OOSS submitted comments on behalf of ASCRS, the American Society of Retinal Specialists (ASRS), and the Society for Excellence in Eyecare (SEE) to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) regarding its proposed 2020 ASC payment regulation.
CMS is replacing the current requirement that every patient have a comprehensive medical history and physical examination within 30 days prior to surgery in an ASC with a requirement that allows the operating physician and ASC to determine which patients would require more extensive testing and assessment prior to surgery.

Near the end of his mission, Captain Kelly shared a prank that lit up Twitter and demonstrated that even serious pilots, scientists, and engineers must make time for a little levity.
