LungLife AI, Inc.
(the “Company” or “LungLife”)

 

CPT® Code granted by American Medical Association

Successful grant marks first step facilitating commercial reimbursement

 

LungLife AI (AIM: LLAI), a developer of clinical diagnostic solutions for lung cancer announces it has been granted a CPT® Proprietary Laboratory Analyses (PLA) code for its LungLB® test by the American Medical Association (AMA). The new code has been approved and published by the AMA Editorial Panel and is scheduled to become effective on 1 April 2022.

 

Reimbursement in the US is comprised of three components: code, price, and coverage. CPT® codes offer health care professionals a uniform language for coding medical services and procedures, and the CPT® code allows clinical laboratories to more specifically identify their tests when billing Medicare and commercial insurers. The successful granting of a CPT® code marks the first step on the path for commercial reimbursement.

 

Paul Pagano, Chief Executive Officer, LungLife AI said: “A CPT® code is fundamental in the commercialisation of the LungLB® test. We were delighted with the AMA’s decision as this will facilitate access to LungLB® for patients with indeterminate pulmonary nodules who are at-risk for lung cancer.”

LungLife AI Clinical Laboratory achieves CAP accreditation

Independent inspection confirms highest standard of care for laboratory patients

 

LungLife AI (AIM: LLAI), a developer of clinical diagnostic solutions for lung cancer enhanced by artificial intelligence, announces that its clinical laboratory in Thousand Oaks, California has been awarded accreditation by the College of American Pathologists (CAP). The Company, whose clinical laboratory is already CLIA certified, voluntarily sought the accreditation as part of its on-going commitment to maintaining best in class quality systems.

 

The Company’s laboratory processes have been independently assessed by the CAP, the world’s largest organisation of board-certified pathologists and leading provider of laboratory accreditation and proficiency testing programmes, during a recent on-site inspection designed to ensure the highest standard of care for all laboratory patients.

 

As part of this process, the inspectors examine a laboratory’s records and quality control procedures, as well as laboratory staff qualifications, equipment, facilities, safety programme and overall management. The U.S. federal government recognises the CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program as being equal-to or more-stringent than the government’s own inspection programme, and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) have granted the CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program “deeming authority,” which allows for CAP accreditation in lieu of a CMS inspection.

 

Lara Baden, VP Clinical Operations, LungLife AI, commented: “We are proud of the recognition of our quality by the College of American Pathologists through receiving this accreditation, which reflects our commitment to maintaining the highest standards of excellence in laboratory testing for patients and ensuring that our work practices meet the rigorous CAP assessment standards. This accreditation will provide ordering physicians and patients a further degree of confidence in the results they are receiving for our LungLB® test as well as for future products.”
