Medicare Part B CLFS: Revised Information for Laboratories on Collecting and Reporting Data for the Private Payor Rate-Based Payment System
CMS revised this article to note that for clinical diagnostic laboratory tests (CDLTs) that aren’t Advanced Diagnostic Laboratory Tests (ADLTs), the data reporting is delayed by one year and must now be reported from January 1, 2022, through March 31, 2022 (previously January 1, 2021, through March 31, 2021). All references to the 2021 data reporting period have been changed to 2022. In addition, CMS included information about the Online Data Collection System. You’ll find substantive content updates in dark red font (see pages 2,13-15 and 21-24).
