I heard that CMS plans to revise the lab DOS policy. Can you provide the transmittal where this information is published?
In the 2018 hospital outpatient prospective payment system (OPPS) proposed rule (CMS-1678-P), the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) outlined a potential change in the laboratory date of service (DOS) policy. Note that this is only proposed and has not yet been finalized. Among other changes, CMS stated that it may modify the DOS policy so that labs can bill Medicare directly for certain tests.
