During the COVID-19 public health emergency, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services will continue to exercise enforcement discretion under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments to allow providers to test asymptomatic individuals using certain point-of-care SARS-CoV-2 tests authorized for symptomatic individuals, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services announced Friday. The decision rescinds a Sept. 26 memorandum that ended the 2020 enforcement discretion policy.
