On July 5, 2011, we published a notice in the Federal Register (76 FR 39110 through 39111) to inform interested parties of an opportunity to participate in the Treatment of Certain Complex Diagnostic Laboratory Tests Demonstration. The Demonstration is mandated by section 3113 of the Affordable Care Act. The notice also serves to notify interested parties that they must obtain a temporary code from CMS for tests currently billed using a ‘‘not otherwise classified (NOC)’’ code but that would otherwise meet the criteria set forth in section 3113 for being a complex diagnostic laboratory test under the Demonstration. Following the publication of the July 5, 2011 notice, CMS received requests from the public to extend the deadline beyond August 1, 2011. We believe we can accommodate the public’s request to extend the deadline for submitting the supporting information needed to request a Temporary Demonstration Gcode and still begin payment under the Demonstration beginning January 1, 2012 as planned.
