A Voice for All
CCLA is an active organization designed to deal with State regulations and legislation and to supplement the activities of the American Clinical Laboratory Association on Federal issues.
We have grown to become instrumental in the formation and enactment of State and Federal laboratory legislation.
CCLA activities include monthly business meetings and an annual meeting held in November of each year.
Supporting the Laboratory Industry
Medi-Cal Provider Rates

Medicare Carrier Advisory Committee
Legislation and Regulations
Throughout the years, CCLA successfully stopped many bad bills and has helped enact important new laboratory laws.
- To actively participate in the public policymaking process and ensure the governmental reimbursement rates for clinical laboratory services will allow full participation by laboratories and adequate access to services for Medicare and Medi-Cal patients.
- To encourage the enactment of uniform laboratory legislation and administrative regulations for the protection of the public.
- To encourage the enactment of non-restrictive legislation, regulation and policies so as to permit the free flow of commerce, and to assure laboratory operations which best serve the interests of the public.
- To cooperate with governmental authorities, professional associations and other interested parties in the health field, in order to provide better health care to the public.
