Recent changes made to PAMA regulations in the last few months mean that many more hospital and other labs must now report their PAMA private payer price data to Medicare. These revisions to reporting requirements and fees will dramatically affect all laboratories!

In fact, your laboratory or organization faces considerable risk if not compliant with the latest PAMA requirements, with continuing adjustments and proposals to the Clinical Laboratory Fee Schedule carrying far-reaching budget implications. The most current understanding of PAMA’s impact is crucial!

This 90-minute program, including an interactive Q&A session, is a must-attend event for everyone in your hospital and lab team responsible for gathering, analyzing, and reporting data to CMS. You’ll get answers to your toughest questions and master the knowledge you need to report accurate and complete data on time!

Learn about how the current PAMA rules will affect your laboratory operationally, the magnitude of PAMA’s financial impact to your organization, members of your team crucial to include in the data collection and reporting process, the latest on very recent changes regarding hospital outreach programs, and much more!

Attend this program, and our experts will guide you through the following important areas

  •  Who has to report this year and why reporting requirements changed
