CR 11916 informs you of new Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988 (CLIA) waived tests approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Since these tests are marketed immediately after approval, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) must notify its MACs of the new tests so that they can accurately process claims. There are 5 newly added waived complexity tests. Make sure your billing staffs are aware of these CLIA-related changes.
