The proposed 2022 Hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment System and ASC Payment System, released July 19, outlined nine procedures slated to temporarily remain on CMS' office-based payable list in 2022.

The procedures, which include ophthalmology and cardiology surgeries, were temporarily approved as office-based procedures in 2021.

CMS also proposes two new procedures to be temporarily placed on the office-based payable list.
