Licenses & Certifications

New York State


When searching the Test Catalog, tests displaying the icon and text “New York Approved” are approved or conditionally approved by New York State and do not require an NYS “NPL” exemption. Please note, for carrier/targeted variant tests the approval status depends on whether the gene is in an approved GeneDx single-gene or multi-gene test. In addition, carrier/targeted testing for any gene is automatically approved for relatives of existing GeneDx patients. In all other situations, complete the New York Exemption Form and fax it to the NYS Department of Health to obtain case-by-case permission before shipping the specimen to GeneDx.
