9 Why should I care? California Business & Professions Code Chapter 3 §1241. (a) This chapter applies to all clinical laboratories in California or receiving biological specimens originating in California for the purpose of performing a clinical laboratory test or examination, and to all persons performing clinical laboratory tests or examinations or engaging in clinical laboratory practice in California or on biological specimens originating in California, except as provided in subdivision (b). 9

10 California Business & Professions Code Changes Passage of new law, AB 761 (Roger Hernandez) effective January 1, 2013 ◦ An act to amend Sections , 1209, and 3041 of the Business and Professions Code, relating to optometrists. 10

11 § B&P Code § § (a) Notwithstanding subdivision (b) of Section 1206 and except as otherwise provided in Section 1241, no person shall perform a clinical laboratory test or examination classified as waived under CLIA unless the clinical laboratory test or examination is performed under the overall operation and administration of the laboratory director, as described in Section 1209, including, but not limited to, documentation by the laboratory director of the adequacy of the qualifications and competency of the personnel, and the test is performed by any of the following persons: (13) A licensed optometrist as authorized under Chapter 7 (commencing with Section 3000).

12 § B&P Code § 1209 § (a) As used in this chapter, "laboratory director" means any person who is a duly licensed physician and surgeon, or, only for purposes of a clinical laboratory test or examination classified as waived, is a duly licensed naturopathic doctor, or a duly licensed optometrist serving as the director of a laboratory which only performs clinical laboratory tests authorized in paragraph (10) of subdivision (e) of Section 3041 that are classified as waived, or is licensed to direct a clinical laboratory under this chapter and who substantially meets the laboratory director qualifications under CLIA for the type and complexity of tests being offered by the laboratory. 12

13 § B&P Code § 3041 (e) An optometrist who is certified to use therapeutic pharmaceutical agents pursuant to Section may also perform all of the following: (9) Ordering of smears, cultures, sensitivities, complete blood count, mycobacterial culture, acid fast stain, urinalysis, tear fluid analysis, and X-rays necessary for the diagnosis of conditions or diseases of the eye or adnexa.

(10) A clinical laboratory test or examination classified as waived under CLIA and designated as waived in paragraph (9) necessary for the diagnosis of conditions and diseases of the eye or adnexa, or if otherwise specifically authorized by this chapter. 13

14 January 1, 2013 An optometrist will be able to direct a California waived laboratory in which “waived” tear fluid analysis and urinalysis laboratory tests may be performed by the optometrists. 14
