New Guidance for the Formatting of the Plans of Correction
• Format for Plans of Corrections (PoCs)/Allegations of Compliance (AOC): Providers/Suppliers and Clinical Laboratory Improvement
Amendments (CLIA) Laboratories will no longer be required to write their PoC (for CLIA, this includes AOCs) on the right side
of the CMS Form 2567. Providers/Suppliers or CLIA Laboratories may submit their PoC/AOC as a separate document attachment
or may continue to document the PoC on the right side of the CMS Form 2567.
• Signature on First Page: The Laboratory Director or Provider/Supplier Representative’s signature is still required on the
first page of the CMS Form 2567 for the PoC/AOC. The PoC/AOC can be sent as an attachment to the signed first page of the
CMS Form 2567.
