Medicare has announced a significant increase in the Specimen Collection Fee for 2023, from $3 to $8.54 and an additional $2 for specimens collected from a Medicare beneficiary in a SNF or by a laboratory on behalf of an HHA. Now is a good time to review and update your charge amounts to maximize reimbursement. Additional information can be found here on the CMS website.
