Certificate of Provider Performed Microscopy Procedures (PPMP)

In PPMP laboratories the PPMP tests may only be performed by a Physician, Dentist,  Podiatrist or Physician Assistant licensed by the Board of Medical Examiners for the State of Oregon; or a Nurse Practitioner licensed and certified by the Oregon State Board of Nursing. When PPMP tests are performed by other personnel, the laboratory becomes moderate complexity.

A laboratory that performs any test not in the waived or PPMP category will be considered either moderate or high complexity and must meet applicable requirements.

Please don’t send hard copy following a fax or email of a lab form. Double forms can cause duplication and extra work.  You can verify receipt of your forms with a phone call or e-mail, see Contact Us (right side of page).
