Deadline for Reporting PAMA Private Payor Data Extended to May 30, 2017

CMS has just announced a PAMA reporting extension until May 30, 2017. CMS will exercise enforcement discretion and not penalize labs that report up to this date.

CMS's announcement has been posted on the CMS PAMA regulations page or view a copy of the announcement here. NILA is continuing to engage the Administration and the Hill to request a one-year delay, and is hopeful this decision was a first step forward to allow for more discussions.
