2012 Welcomes New Waived Labs
January 27th, 2012
CMS updated it's list of waived laboratories on January 24. The entire list may be found at: https://www.cms.gov/CLIA/downloads/waivetbl.pdf.
Be sure to check with insurance carriers about coverage requirements. Just because you can perform a test in an office; does not mean you will be reimbursed for it.
Many of the new waived labs are associated with drug screening. There are state and federal laws associated with doing work-related drug screeing INCLUDING confirmatory screenings with a second method and allowing explanations as to why a test might be positive. Be sure to check with an authority before performing these tests.
