- Part of Hinshaw team representing a laboratory whose CLIA certification was revoked, resulting in cancellation of the laboratory's approval to receive Medicare or Medicaid payments. At the point that Hinshaw entered the proceedings, the laboratory had already unsuccessfully appealed the decision to CMS and was subject to an Order to Show Cause by an Administrative Law Judge ("ALJ") with the Departmental Appeals Board, in response to a Motion to Dismiss the appeal filed by CMS.
Hinshaw successfully argued there was no cause for dismissal, and the ALJ issued a Ruling Denying CMS' Motion to Dismiss. Hinshaw then worked with the laboratory to develop a comprehensive Corrective Action Plan in order to document the laboratory's remediation plan. Ultimately, Hinshaw was able to negotiate a settlement agreement with CMS on behalf of the laboratory, guaranteeing that CMS would: (1) rescind the revocation of laboratory's CLIA certificate and the cancellation of laboratory's approval to receive Medicare and Medicaid payments, as well as (2) lift the limitation on laboratory's CLIA certificate for laboratory services performed for the test at issue, and (3) lift the suspension of laboratory's ability to receive Medicare and Medicaid payments for any lab services performed for the test at issue.
