This demonstration project will extend coverage for this testing from January 1, 2013 through the end of the demonstration in order to obtain sufficient data to be able to conduct a cost benefit analysis of providing this screening for our beneficiary population. Dated: June 13, 2014. Aaron Siegel, Alternate OSD Federal Register Liaison Officer, Department of Defense. D. Implementation DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION The new demonstration is effective 30 days after publication in the Federal Register and will continue for a period of three years from the date of the original demonstration unless terminated earlier by the Director, DHA. LDTs approved by the Director, DHA, or designee, during the new demonstration period will become available for costsharing for qualified TRICARE beneficiaries during the demonstration period when performed by CLIA certified laboratories. Should the FDA issue final guidance on LDTs and/or enforce the requirement for clearance or premarket approval for LDTs, the Director, DHA will modify or terminate the demonstration, as appropriate, and the DoD will ensure compliance with applicable federal law and regulations. emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES E. Evaluation An annual evaluation of the new demonstration will be conducted to determine how many TRICARE approved LDTs were provided to beneficiaries across all TRICARE Regions. The evaluation will also include a review of the LDT examination and recommendation process to assess feasibility, resource requirements, and cost-effectiveness of DHA establishing an internal safety and efficacy review process for these devices for TRICARE cost-sharing purposes. These results of the evaluation will provide an evaluation of the potential improvement of the quality of healthcare services for beneficiaries who would not otherwise have access to these safe and effective tests. Based on the results of the demonstration evaluation, a recommendation will be made on whether to modify 32 CFR 199.4(g)(15)(i)(A) to remove the restriction for non-FDA approved LDTs and permit TRICARE cost-sharing of LDTs that are found to otherwise meet TRICARE requirements for safety and effectiveness. The Department of Defense will also conduct a cost benefit analysis of providing CF carrier screening in accordance with ACOG guidelines to the TRICARE beneficiary population for purposes of determining whether to permanently establish coverage.
