Clinical Lab Billing

Clinical Lab Billing?

Clinical labs today face mounting challenges: increased scrutiny, soaring operating costs, and declining reimbursement rates, making financial stability a tough battle, particularly in a volatile market with significant client churn. Ensuring robust documentation and efficient clinical lab billing processes has become paramount to offset these hurdles.

The Protecting Access to Medicare Act (PAMA) introduced in 2014, with its updated payment rates in 2018, delivered initial blows. With looming tighter restrictions, more reporting mandates, and steeper PAMA rate cuts, labs are preparing for even greater challenges. Many small to medium-sized labs may find profitability elusive, while others might just aim to break even. Coupled with the hurdles of securing insurance contracts and appropriate reimbursements, constrained insurance payouts and difficulties in patient collections further exacerbate the situation.
