The Protecting Access to Medicare Act (PAMA) requires certain laboratories to submit private payor rates for clinical laboratory tests. Private payor data is due to the CMS by March 31, 2017. To help you with the submission process, the CMS created a PAMA DATA COLLECTION USER GUIDE with stepbystep instructions and screen shots. The CAP has added this invaluable tool to our pathologyspecific PAMA RESOURCES, including an INFORMATIVE INFOGRAPHIC and PODCAST, to help laboratories understand regulatory requirements and upcoming deadlines. These resources and additional tools can be found on the CAP'S PAMA RESOURCES WEBPAGE.
