Jeffrey Sherrin was the featured presenter at the 2018 Lab Leaders Forum and Mid-Winter meeting of the National Independent Laboratory Association held on January 26-27 in San Diego. As Legal Counsel for the National Independent Laboratory Association, Jeff conducted two presentations with associate attorney Danielle Holley. The first seminar dealt exclusively with the recently-filed lawsuit against the Secretary of Health and Human Services over the agency’s implementation of PAMA, the federal law changing the Medicare rates for clinical laboratory services. The second program included more wide-ranging issues, but particularly focused on the aggressive audits being conducted by private payers. Held at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego, the two-day event is held for clinical laboratory executives.
