Signed into law on April 1, 2014, the Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014 (PAMA) includes the most extensive reform of the Medicare Clinical Laboratory Fee Schedule (CLFS) since it was established in 1984. Section 216 of PAMA creates a new Section 1834A of the Social Security Act, which contains many of the CLFS reforms. Starting on January 1, 2017, most rates on the CLFS will be derived from private payor rates for laboratory services.
