These reports include the Hayes Rating to indicate the overall strength and direction of the body of evidence for the molecular test. Molecular Test Assessments provide evidence-based support for the development of coverage policy, utilization management, and evidence-based clinical practices. Reports are reviewed annually up to 5 years post publication to determine if there is new literature or evidence that would impact a change in rating and warrant an updated report.
