Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA)

During the ’90s, new federal rules made many physicians think twice about starting in-office labs. But doctors have grown less intimidated by the rules, and today, in-office labs are quickly becoming an indispensable feature of many physician practices.

A few of the tests that can be performed in an in-office lab (general practice and are eligible for reimbursement) include: basic metabolic panel, comprehensive metabolic panel, lipid panel, drug screen, urinalysis, albumin, colorectal screening, creatinine, lead, potassium, protein, some hemoglobin tests, influenza A or B, streptococcus, and nasal smears. There are even more for specialists.
