The one-day G2 Intelligence Lab Leadership Summit was a deep-dive into laboratory reimbursement and coding issues, stressing how labs can comply with new and existing rules and regulations to remain compliant, avoid payment delays, and maximize lab revenue, cash flow, and profitability under the latest rules.
This summit represented a unique opportunity to meet with your peers to discover specific ideas, tips and techniques that can help you to:
- Maximize reimbursements for diagnostic lab testing under PAMA and the new weighted private payor rates
- Maintain lab test volume and revenue to the maximum extent possible despite cutbacks
- Adjust quickly and easily to the new rates, new codes, and new reimbursement rules and guidelines
With the upcoming January deadlines, regardless of if you are an independent lab, hospital lab, or part of a large lab organization, you are facing cuts in Medicare reimbursements due to PAMA.
CMS estimates that Medicare spending on lab testing could be slashed by over $650 million in 2018 alone and under the new weighted private payor rates, almost three quarters of all test codes on the revised CLFS will have reduced payment amounts.
XIFIN was proud to participate as a speaker and a Silver Sponsor at the Lab Leadership Summit.
