DOH Issues Update Regarding Modern Diagnostic Laboratory


NYSHFA just received notification from the Department of Health that it issued an Amended Order for Summary Action against Modern Diagnostic Laboratory (MDL). The Amended Order enables MDL to resume providing services under existing contracts.  The Amended Order requires that MDL meet certain requirements, including but not limited to, the immediate employment of an independent consultant who will be approved by the Department, and the cessation of any inappropriate testing and reporting practices.  

For providers seeking to contract with an alternative laboratory, a list of other approved laboratories can be found at the following link:
