A CLIA waiver number is required on the claim form for all CLIA waived tests. The CLIA waiver is usully issued by the state. If you are in a private practice then your office will have to apply for one. If you have more than 1 office location and the CLIA waived test is done in the other locations you will need a CLIA waiver for each additional location. If you are part of parent company or corporation, the company should have a CLIA waiver for all CLIA waived tests.
I dont know if the CMS website provides this information about which state dept to contact But you may want to check with your Medicare carrier to see if they have any links or contact information.
