Description:

Just released are the final regulations of The Protecting Access to Medicare Act (PAMA) Section 216. PAMA significantly revises the Medicare payment system for clinical diagnostic laboratory tests by requiring that Medicare payment for clinical laboratories be based on the weighted median of private payer rates along with a number of other provisions.

 

Please note that details on this final rule are still being elucidated and additional specifics are expected to be introduced by CMS in the coming months.  Therefore, this webcast is just the first AMP educational event on PAMA implementation. The AMP Economic Affairs Committee will continue to update membership as details emerge and the committee is organizing a session on PAMA at this year’s annual meeting. During and after the webcast we encourage attendees to submit their questions. These questions and answers will be compiled into a document and will be available as a supplement to the archived version of this webcast.


Learning Objectives:

  • Provide a brief background on PAMA and present details on the implementation timeline
  • Review the contents of the final rule. Topics will include:
    • Definition of “Applicable Laboratory”
    • Ratesetting Process and Penalties
    • Advanced Laboratory Diagnostic Tests (ADLTs)
    • Coding and other provisions
  • Explain how and to what extent molecular pathology professionals and their laboratories will be affected.

Level of Instruction: Basic
