The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is hosting a complimentary webinar concerning the clinical laboratory billing.

The program, “Clinical Diagnostic Laboratory Test Payment System: Data Reporting Call,” takes place Wednesday, November 2, from 2:30-3:30 pm ET.

During this program, attendees will learn how to report data required by the Clinical Diagnostic Test Payment System final rule. Laboratories, including physician office laboratories, are required to report HCPCS laboratory codes, associated private payor rates, and volume data if they meet the following two requirements:

  1. Have more than $12,500 in Medicare revenues from laboratory services on the Clinical Laboratory Fee Schedule.
  2. Receive more than 50 percent of their Medicare revenues from laboratory and physician services during a data collection period.

CMS will use this data to set Medicare payment rates effective January 1, 2018.

The program will also include a Q&A session. To register, click here. Space may be limited.
