I was pinch hitting for a senior Medicare speaker, but did my best both to talk about what is going on at Medicare vis-a-vis pathology and to convey how the field, profession, or industry (take your pick) looks from the viewpoint of a Medicare policymaker. My deck for the presentation is available in the cloud, here.
My key points were...
• Federal policy changes for pathology are legion
• Local changes to pathology policy
• MolDX Program
• How pathology looks to policymakers
• Can changes be more selective?
