Introduction to Responses
Noridian appreciates the comments received from stakeholders during the open comment period on the proposed MolDX: Plasma-Based Genomic Profiling Local Coverage Determination (LCD). We reviewed the comments in their entirety. Submitted comments that cite published, peer-reviewed literature provide suitable evidence that may inform policy, while less rigorous comments (e.g., anecdotal, unpublished information not subject to peer review) are much less influential to policy determinations.
