Thanks for your reply!
This appears to be a change from 2012. If I had it right, last year the fees were vastly different between physician and facility payments. 2012 Hospital outpatient facility payment and ASC payments for 76881 = $96.31 and $55.57 respectively, and for 76882 = $62.92 and $10.55 respectively. Did this change, or did I have it wrong for 2012?
Also, can I look up ASC and hospital outpatient facility payments with the Radiology or Orthopedic coder?

SuperCoder does provide ASC and APC payment information (for ASC and Hospital OutPt. facility). These information are exclusively available in OutPatient Facility Coder pack (a Coder pack specific for OutPatient Facility coders). The tool can be accessed through that product, not through Radiology / Orthopedic Coder packs.
