Theranos to appeal CMS sanctions
Theranos, a health technology company, has filed a notice of intent to appeal the sanctions that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) imposed last month on the company's Newark, California, lab.
Theranos is not conducting patient testing at its Newark facility. In addition, since CMS originally announced the imposition of sanctions, Theranos has made substantial progress toward correcting the deficiencies CMS identified, including appointing new laboratory leadership; enhancing Theranos' clinical policies and procedures; and revamping training programs.
While the appeal is pending, Theranos intends to continue communicating with CMS regarding the possibility of reaching a mutually agreeable resolution to this matter.
