New York Client Information

New York State Public Health Law and Regulations require samples that are collected from patients within New York State be tested by a clinical laboratory that holds proper New York licensing. Due to the rarity of many genetic conditions, laboratories may not hold proper licensing for all testing options available. However, there can be justification for requesting laboratory testing from a facility that does not hold the specific disease testing permits.


In these instances, a Non- Permitted Laboratory Test Request can be submitted to the New York State Health Department for approval. Approval must be granted prior to submitting and testing a sample collected in New York to the non- permitted laboratory. Approval or rejection will be sent in writing to the submitting physician for each request submitted to the department. If the request is rejected, the reason for rejection will be included in the response.
