News We Want to Share!!
Medical Arts Laboratory was recently surveyed for certification by the Wyoming Department of Health. As a result, our lab met all the requirements of the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) for recertification.
Congratulations to our whole staff on a job well done!
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) regulates all laboratory testing (except research) performed on humans in the U.S. through the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA). In total, CLIA covers approximately 225,000 laboratory entities. Consequently, the Division of Laboratory Services, within the Survey and Certification Group, under the Office of Clinical Standards and Quality (OCSQ) has the responsibility for implementing the CLIA Program.
Above all, the objective of the CLIA program is to ensure quality laboratory testing. Although all clinical laboratories must be duly certified to receive Medicare or Medicaid payments, CLIA has no direct Medicare or Medicaid program responsibilities.
