Many of the nation’s hospital and health system CEOs and CFOs remain unaware of the requirement that they report their private  payer clinical laboratory test price data to the federal  Centers for Medicare  and Medicaid Services (CMS) starting Jan. 1, 2020. Hospitals that fail to report this data  required by the Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014 (PAMA) may be assessed penalties of up to $10,000 per day for each failure to report, misrepresentation, or omission.

This comprehensive workshop is designed to help hospital CEOs, CFOs, their laboratory administrators, and others tasked with data reporting and other requirements of PAMA to fulfill this federal law, with the data  reported used to calculate an updated Clinical Laboratory Fee Schedule expected to go into effect  Jan. 1, 2021.
