According to QuickMedical, CLIA refers to Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments. These amendments were passed by the Congress back in 1988. These laws stipulate that laboratory testing procedures should ensure timeliness, accuracy and dependability irrespective of the location of the tests.
Loren Timmons, Marketing Director at QuickMedical said, "With the increases in medical insurance deductibles and limitations on coverage, products and devices such as glucose meters, cholesterol analyzers, pregnancy tests and others, can save the consumer time and money by doing these tests in the home versus in the physician office or utilizing an online mail in testing laboratory."
Every laboratory and home test has its own unique requirements. Certain tests can be highly complex and may require specialized equipment. If these tests satisfy certain conditions they can be exempt or waived from all regulatory procedures. In other words, these tests are cleared by FDA and can be performed at home. Most of these tests are very simple to carry out and use standardized equipment, which makes chances of an inaccuracy impossible. Such tests are referred to as a CLIA waived.
Mr. Timmons concluded, “This economy has left some people without insurance coverage, and that has helped fuel the home testing kits and online testing companies. Even people with insurance coverage are facing larger deductibles and other out-of-pocket expenses.”
