Title: CLIA (CMS-116) Form
Post by: billspecial on December 16, 2008, 07:09:31 PM
I am applying for a CLIA# for my provider(Family Practice in the process of an Urgent Care contract)  should I apply for a Waiver or PPM? and if so, will this change once he opens his Urgent Care? Thank You again.

If you are applying for a CLIA# I'm not sure why you would need the waiver.  I tried to look into it but didn't come up with anything.  If you are applying for the CLIA# under the provider's name and tax ID# then it shouldn't change when he opens the urgent care.
