Diagnostic Testing Issues

NASL 2019 Issue Briefs:

NASL's Diagnostic Testing Committee addresses issues related to diagnostic testing, imaging and portable x-ray. Committee priorities include:

  • Preserving access to critical bedside laboratory services for nursing facility & homebound patients;
  • Tracking rulemaking such as updates to the Physician Fee Schedule that impact lab and portable x-ray reporting and fees; and
  • Advocating for updates to the travel allowance and related reimbursement for costs incurred in collecting patient samples from patients in nursing homes or the home setting.
