PAMA Reporting Regulations and Penalties

The PAMA law brought a wide variety of changes to Medicare, including the method by which Medicare will calculate the rates it will pay under the Clinical Lab Fee Schedule. Data collected from the period of Jan. 1, 2019-June 30, 2019, must now be reported to Medicare between January 1 and March 31, 2022 or potentially face fines of more than $10,000 per day.
