Legislation

Within the House of Representatives a memorandum was referred to the Department 0f Health and Human Services to allow clinical laboratories to advertise for diagnostic services for consumer awareness available to them, especially since the COVID-19 pandemic, which will amend an outdated laboratory act from 1951. The memorandum submitted by Representative Johnathan D. Hershey in part stated - "… it has never been more important for consumers to be provided with information concerning the availability of diagnostic laboratory testing options available to them".

For further information regarding this plan to introduce this legislation please refer to the PA government website.
