33 Healthcare Groups Sign Letter of Support for SALSA

Today, the National Independent Laboratory Association (NILA), the American Association of Bioanalysts, and an additional 31 leading provider organizations sent a letter to congressional leadership calling for enactment of the Saving Access to Laboratory Services Act (SALSA) prior to the end of the calendar year. The bipartisan, bicameral legislation seeks to protect community and regional clinical laboratories from drastic cuts to reimbursement scheduled for January of 2024 and future years. Introduced by Senators Sherrod Brown (D-OH) and Thom Tillis (R-NC) and Representatives Gus Bilirakis (R-FL), Richard Hudson (R-NC), Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA), Bill Pascrell (D-NJ), and Scott Peters (D-CA), SALSA will repair a flawed data reporting and rate setting methodology put in place by the Protecting Access to Medicare Act (PAMA) of 2014.
