CMS has released announcement documents for the summer new lab test pricing meetings (aka "crosswalk, gapfill meetings").
The public comment meeting will be June 22, a Thursday. The expert advisory panel meetings will be July 19/20, a Wednesday/Thursday.
CMS should release an agenda, including all code names, at least 30 days ahead of June 22.

The June 22 meeting permanent announcement is here. Presentations due by June 1. Registration will be via email with a specific subject line (for commenters only). Public streaming won't require registration.
The July 19/20 permanent announcement is here. Stakeholders with codes are "standby speakers" who will answer questions if asked, and must pre-register (by email). More details will appear about 2 weeks before the meeting.
Last year there was a bit of a fuss over whether a code can be crosswalked to a code in the active gapfill process - answer, NO. And whether a code can be crosswalked to an ADLT code. For the latter, CMS has no rule against it, but you can't force CMS to pick an ADLT code as a crosswalk and if they are disinclined to do so, they simply won't. Codes are stated to be crosswalked to, "existing test, multiple existing test codes, or a portion of an existing test code" which doesn't rule-out an ADLT code choice.
