Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments Program (CLIA) The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) regulates all laboratory testing (except research) performed on humans in the U.S. through the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA). In total, CLIA covers approximately 189,000 laboratory entities. The Division of Laboratory Services, within the Survey and Certification Group, under the Center for Medicaid and State Operations (CMSO) has the responsibility for implementing the CLIA Program.

In 2007, the Minnesota Department of Health conducted a survey of our laboratory for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). The Bone Histomorphometry Core Laboratory was certified and found to be in compliance with the newly effective final revised CLIA regulations.

The objective of the CLIA program is to ensure quality laboratory testing.

The Mayo Clinic Bone Histomorphometry Core Laboratory is committed to providing the best service to our patients and our customers.
