What Is CLIA?

CLIA stands for ‘Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments.’ This Government amendment specified that laboratory requirements are based on the complexity of the test performed. As a result, they established provisions for categorizing a test as Waived.

Our CLIA waived drug tests employ methodologies that are so simple and accurate as to render the likelihood of erroneous results negligible and pose no reasonable risk of harm to the donor following manufacturer instructions. Therefore these test meets the requirements set by this statute.[/no-amp]

Do I Need A CLIA-Waived Test?

CLIA requirements do apply to entities that perform tests on ‘materials derived from the human body to provide information for the diagnosis, prevention or treatment of any disease or impairment of, or the assessment of the health of, human beings to meet specific Federal requirements. If the tests are performed for these purposes, the organization doing so is considered under CLIA to be a laboratory and must register with the CLIA program. In these instances, the advantage of using a CLIA Waived test is that it waives you from having to comply with a long list of laboratory requirements (such as quality control, training, etc.)[no-amp]

CLIA-Waived tests can still be used for use in the workplace and at home as a Waived product. They are simple to use and have an FDA 510(k) clearance.

The cost of a CLIA waived test can be claimed back through Medicaid and Medicare. Refer to the CMS website.
