Laboratory Question for the Week of November 9, 2015

Laboratory Compliance Question of the Week

Question:

Where can I find information explaining the details of the new CMS proposal for clinical diagnostic lab tests?

Answer:

The proposed rule is available at https://s3.amazonaws.com/public-inspection.federalregister.gov/2015-24770.pdf

In addition, on Tuesday, Nov 10, from 2 to 3 pm Eastern time, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will hold a call relating to the proposed payment system. Registration is required and CMS states that “space may be limited so register early.” To do so, go to https://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Medicare-Fee-for-Service-Payment/ClinicalLabFeeSched/National-Provider-Call.html
