CodeMap® 02/10/2023: OIG report on 2021 CLFS Spending

CodeMap® Compliance Briefing: February 10, 2023


Editor's Welcome:

According to the latest OIG Data Brief, the Medicare Part B Program spent $9.3 billion on clinical lab tests in 2021. Genetic tests (molecular pathology tests, multianalyte algorithmic assays, genomic sequencing procedures, and proprietary lab analysis tests) increased by 56% which is an increase of $677 million over 2020 spending.   The OIG noted concern for the number of chemistry tests, as the numbers declined to below the pre-pandemic levels. Below is a synopsis of the OIG report from Jondavid Klipp of Laboratory Economics.  As always, please forward any questions, comments, and/or suggestions to us via email.
