ACT NOW! Proposed Changes to the Clinical Fee Schedule
Tuesday, November 24, 2015 5:30 PM

CMS has published a proposed rule describing how the agency plans to recalculate the Clinical Laboratory Fee Schedule (CLFS) per the PAMA law passed by Congress. ASCLS and the Government Affairs Committee are very concerned about a number of points in the proposed rule, including one that could lead to a 50% reduction in what we are paid for our services, and will be submitting comment to CMS outling our concerns. However, it is VERY important that CMS hear concerns from as many others in the laboratory community as possible. For sample letter and more go to: http://www.ascls.org/government-affairs-main
