This is a recorded version of an AACC live webinar that was held December 4, 2014. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is working to revamp the clinical laboratory fee schedule to base laboratory payments on private rates at a time when there is much uncertainty about how the regulation of laboratory-developed tests will play out. Both of these initiatives are expected to affect laboratory reimbursement in a big way. During this 60-minute webinar, Charles Root, PhD, Chief Executive Officer of CodeMap in Barrington, Illinois and Peter Kazon, JD, Senior Counsel at Alston & Bird in Washington, DC, detail what CMS plans to pay for the new 2015 CPT codes; discuss recent local coverage policy changes affecting lab reimbursement; reveal the latest news on the shift towards a new clinical lab fee schedule based on private fees; and review the regulatory and cost implications of expanded LDT oversight.

A Q&A session from the live webinar is also included on the recording
