The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services will host a webinar Nov. 10 at 3:30 p.m. ET on the Medicare Clinical Laboratory Fee Schedule private payor data collection and reporting policies. The PAMA requirement to report private payor data soon will newly apply to many hospitals with outreach laboratories, which will be required to report their private payor laboratory prices and volumes. Specifically, hospitals that received at least $12,500 in Medicare revenues from CLFS services billed on the CMS 1450 14X bill type from Jan. 1 through June 30, 2019, will be required to report on these data between January and March 2022. Register here in advance to attend the webinar.
