Volume XXVI No. 2 – February 4, 2019
NOW THAT MOST HOSPITALS ARE INCLUDED as applicable laboratories that must report their PAMA private payer lab test price data to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, managers of those labs will benefit from the incisive analysis in this issue of the lessons learned during the 2017 PAMA reporting cycle. THE DARK REPORT further offers recommendations on how labs can do a better job of gathering and reporting their own data to CMS. Also, TDR delivers an exclusive analysis of why the Government Accounting Office's assertion that CMS will be paying billions more for Part B clinical lab tests is simply wrong.
