The provider wants to bill toxicology tests for his patients. Are there any requirements for this?
If you are doing any on-site laboratory testing using test devices, you need to obtain a license from the NYS Department of Health.
You will need to register as either a Limited Service Laboratory or a NYS Clinical Laboratory depending on the testing performed, and the devices used to do that testing.
Limited Service Laboratory
Providers interested in performing on-site laboratory testing using test devices categorized by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as Waived must apply for a Limited Service Laboratory Registration Certificate.
NYS Clinical Laboratory
Providers interested in performing on-site laboratory testing using test devices categorized by the FDA as Non-Waived (Moderate or High complexity) must apply for a NYS Clinical Laboratory Permit.
