Massive cuts in payment rates for pathology and laboratory services could occur as a result of a proposed regulation from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. CMS is proposing that some pathology and laboratory services would be decreased as much as 50 to 80 percent.

In response, ASCP is urging everyone to contact their members of Congress as soon as possible. The proposed cuts are outlined in the CMS' 2014 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule proposed rule. The proposed cuts apply to the technical component and global payments for pathology and laboratory services.

ASCP is asking you to use the ASCP e-Advocacy Center to send a quick message to your representatives in Congress, urging them to contact CMS in opposition to the proposed payment cap. ASCP has developed a customizable draft letter so that contacting your members of Congress will take only few minutes.

For more detail on the cuts proposed by CMS for pathology and laboratory services, see ASCP's recent analysis in ASCP e-Policy News. more
