The HCPCS codes listed in the chart that follows were new in 2011, are subject to CLIA edits and were not mentioned in a previous transmittal.

A facility without a valid, current, CLIA certificate, with a current CLIA certificate of waiver (certificate type code 2) or with a current CLIA certificate for provider-performed microscopy procedures (certificate type code 4) must not be paid for these tests.
