This company is offering a free ruler/bookmark as a helpful reminder of the new National Coverage Policy (NCP) for lipids. The new policies, announced recently, affect reimbursement for lipid testing. They go into effect in November of 2002.
The National Coverage Policies for 23 clinical laboratory tests were recently published in the Federal Register. A brief summary of the new policies, and their impact on lipid testing reimbursement, is available on the Equal Diagnostics website, along with a link to the full details in the Federal Register.
The free ruler conveniently states the basic rule changes in brief.
