CodeMap® Compliance Briefing: January 12, 2017
After several delays, CMS has posted the final 2017 Medicare Clinical Laboratory Fee Schedule (CLFS) on their website and issued Transmittal 3682 summarizing the changes. A previous version of the CLFS was temporarily posted several weeks ago, but then withdrawn so that various errors could be corrected. Please note, that this is the last year, when the CLFS will include differing fee schedules for each state. Next year, 2018, pursuant to PAMA, CMS will convert to a single national schedule with payments for individual tests the same throughout the U.S. and its territories.
