MTS/CLIA Application Decision Tree
The Washington Medical Test Site (MTS) licensure program is exempt from the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988 (CLIA). You don't need to apply to Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) for a CLIA number. Your MTS license will contain both your MTS license number and your CLIA number.
Good Laboratory Practices
- Review the CDC Ready? Set? Test! Booklet for best practices in waived testing.
