waived tests include dipstick and tablet testing, glucose testing, protime machine use, hemocult etc

I was going to send you a PM but i don't have that feature. I'm interested to learn how to bill for CLIA directly and the process of applying for the Part B number. I'm located in Illinois. Thank you.
