Some news from CMS (this looks pretty good) . . . .
The Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) brochure has been updated and is now available in downloadable format on the Medicare Learning Network’s (MLN) Products page located at http://www.cms.hhs.gov/MLNProducts/downloads/CLIABrochure.pdf .
The brochure includes an overview of CLIA, why it is important, how test methods are categorized, enrollment information, as well as information regarding the five types of laboratory certificates. A hard copy of the brochure will be available early this summer and will be available for ordering on the MLN Publications Page at http://www.cms.hhs.gov/MLNProducts/MPUB/list.asp .
