payor coverage

The agency issued a new draft decision memo, outlining various criteria it intends to apply when determining coverage for current and future blood-based CRC screening tests.

Myriad Genetics' EndoPredict, Agendia's MammaPrint (distributed in Germany by PathoNext), and Veracyte's Prosigna will now be covered by public insurance.

Natera said that the expanded coverage by Centene will add 24 million people for whom the Panorama noninvasive prenatal test will be covered.

After a two-year evaluation in advanced non-small cell lung cancers with Allegheny Health Network, the payor will cover the test for its regional members.

NantHealth's net loss more than tripled in the second quarter, though it continues to build up its cash reserves.

Researchers concluded that there has been significant expansion of coverage for ctDNA assays over the past four years, but policies remain very heterogeneous and often limited.

Based on the results of Project Baby Bear, Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego hopes the State of California will cover rapid whole-genome sequencing going forward.

The Minneapolis-based firm believes the assay can successfully serve as a clinical indicator for patients at risk of developing high-grade prostate cancer (HGPC), thereby improving prostate cancer management. 

Noridian is also developing a generic policy for donor-derived cfDNA tests that will include several commercially available tests, Natera said.

Under the guidance, group health plans and group and individual health insurers must cover diagnostic testing and other "certain related items and services."
