Regulatory Issues

Clinical laboratories are subject to a number of federal regulations pertaining to laboratory quality, oversight and safety requirements.  Laboratories must comply with these standards to be eligible for Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement. AACC regularly monitors and reports on these issues, while working closely with the appropriate regulatory bodies to ensure that the views of professional laboratory scientists are taken into consideration when important decisions are made.  Below are a number of ongoing regulatory issues monitored by the Association.
