CMS is hosting an educational call on November 2, 2016 to discuss reporting obligations under the June 23, 2016 Clinical Diagnostic Test Payment System final rule.  As previously reported, under the Protecting Access to Medicare Act (PAMA), certain laboratories must report data to CMS on private payor rates and volume of clinical laboratory tests, which will be used to set Medicare rates beginning in January 1, 2018.  The November 2 CMS call will cover system registration, data submission, and data certification.
