Coalition for 21st Century Medicine Commends CMS for Modernization of Billing Rules for Precision Medicine Tests

On November 1, 2017, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued the Calendar Year 2018 Hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment System Final Rule, establishing a new policy for determining the billing rules (commonly referred to as the “date of service”) for precision medicine laboratory tests. The new policy will take effect January 1, 2018 and will enable laboratories to bill Medicare directly for many precision diagnostic tests performed on specimens collected from hospital outpatients. Current Medicare regulations frequently require hospitals to bill Medicare for tests that are performed separately by independent laboratories, creating unnecessary complexity and delayed patient access to test results and treatments.

Welcome from the Coalition Steering Committee

Kim Popovits“The value of molecular diagnostics in delivering precision medicine in healthcare is simply way too high to ignore. Genomic medicine should and will be the future. In our efforts to help more patients improve their health outcomes, we must develop a framework for regulatory and reimbursement pathways that inspires innovation and investment in this important field.” – Kim Popovits, President and CEO, Genomic Health
