Brief Blog: CMS and FDA make "Parallel Review" Permanent

CMS and FDA have run the "parallel review" program for several years, one example of which was the Exact Sciences Cologuard screening test, which received a draft NCD on the same day as its FDA approval.  (The draft NCD was finalized in a couple months).

CMS and FDA have released policymaking that the program will be permanently available.  For the 8-page Federal Register notice, here.
