In order to bill and receive payment for certain laboratory tests in the 80xxx series, yes, you will need a CLIA number in order to get paid - for Medicare and Medicaid. Keep in mind, CLIA is maintained by CMS. If a CLIA waived lab is billed to Medicare or Medicaid - you HAVE to have a CLIA number on the claim to get paid. Some private payors, don't require this.

Great...thank you. It's for a private insurance. I actually just got paid today on it from BCBS Florida, so that answered my question when I got my remits in this afternoon.... Thank you all! :)
