The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) regulates all laboratory testing performed on humans in the U.S. through CLIA. There are about 189,000 laboratories that fall under their oversight and are subject to CLIA standards and requirements. The Division of Laboratory Services, under the Center for Medicaid and State Operations (CMSO) has the responsibility for enforcing the CLIA Program. The main goal of the CLIA program is to ensure quality laboratory testing.
