This webinar details the methodology and related requirements adopted by CMS for developing a revised Medicare Clinical Laboratory Fee Schedule (CLFS) using rates paid by private health insurance companies, Medicaid Managed Care Organizations and Medicare Advantage plans. Key changes covered include the market-based data approach that Medicare uses to set payment rates; the switchover to a national fee schedule creating a single payment rate nationwide for each test without local variation; and the creation of a new category of tests, Advanced Diagnostic Laboratory Tests (ADLTs) and the different pricing methods and reporting periods for existing and new ADLTs.

An analysis will be presented of projected lab pricing changes under the Medicare market-based system starting in 2018 along with its expected impact on commercial payer lab rates.
