Lab Tests Face Revaluation, Cuts Under New CMS Proposals

This article was originally published in The Gray Sheet

Executive Summary

CMS is proposing a comprehensive review process to ensure test payments account for changes in technology. The effort would likely lead to pay reductions in many instances to address new efficiencies in the lab. In addition, double-digit cuts in lab payments are proposed in the agency’s 2014 physician fee schedule draft.
