CMS issues Transmittal on Revised Data Reporting Period under PAMA

Following the passage of the LAB Act, CMS issued a transmittal that specifies the new data reporting period for Clinical Diagnostic Laboratory Tests (CDLTs) that are not Advanced Diagnostic Laboratory Tests (ADLTs) (delayed until January 1 – March 31, 2021) while confirming that the data collection period (January 1 – June 30, 2019) remains unchanged.

The revised MLN article was published on January 8, 2020.
