PLA Code application submitted in first step in reimbursement process
LungLife AI (AIM: LLAI), a developer of clinical diagnostic solutions for lung cancer enhanced by artificial intelligence, announces it has submitted its application for a Proprietary Laboratory Analysis (PLA) code to the American Medical Association.
Reimbursement in the US is comprised of three components: code, price, and coverage. The code is the mechanism by which clinical laboratories can more specifically identify their tests when billing Medicare and commercial insurers. If LungLife’s application for a PLA code is granted, the code will be priced for Medicare by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) in 2022. PLA code applications can be made at four times in the year.
