4. Technical Assessment (TA) Documentation


The following are frequently asked questions about the DEX™ Diagnostics Exchange Registry and Z-Code™ Program.

If technical assessment documents are needed to evaluate coverage, you will be notified by email. Once notified, please submit all completed documentation within 15 calendar days. In general, additional documentation is needed for more complex testing. For example, all NGS-based tests require additional documentation and form submission.
 
We recommend completing all aspects of test validation prior to registering for a Z-Code to prevent delays. If the 15-day deadline is missed, your test will not have demonstrated compliance with relevant standards and policies and by default will not be covered by most payors. However, you may submit your technical assessment documentation at any time after the deadline for review. Your test will remain in a not covered status until the technical assessment review is completed successfully.
