Starting in 2018, Medicare reimbursement for most high-volume and many other laboratory tests are seeing reductions of up to 10 percent per year from 2018-2020, followed by up to 15 percent for each of the next three years as required by the Protecting Access to Medicare Act (PAMA). All clinical labs in the U.S. — from the largest national reference labs to hospital outreach labs to physician office labs will be impacted by these substantial cuts. Moreover, reduced Medicare payments will also result in lower payments to state Medicaid programs and have a ripple effect to commercial payers which will move to adjust its rates downward as part of future contract terms.
