PAMA Lawsuit – ACLA’s Reply in Support of Plaintiff’s Motion for Summary Judgment

On December 16, 2019, ACLA filed reply papers in support of its motion for summary judgment and its opposition to the Department of Health and Human Services’ cross-motion for summary judgment. ACLA focused the reply on the fact that the definition of what is an applicable laboratory is arbitrary and capricious and the Final Rule, particularly with respect to how HHS defined the reporting of entities based on their revenues and NPI, is an unreasonable interpretation of the statute. HHS has the opportunity to reply, which is due on January 10, 2020. ACLA has asked for a hearing as soon as possible and for the Court to expeditiously decide the case.
