U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services publish negative proposed NCD for Epi proColon
Berlin, October 16, 2020- Epigenomics AG (Frankfurt Prime Standard: ECX, OTCQX: EPGNY; the “Company”) announces that the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) have issued a negative reimbursement proposal in connection with the National Coverage Determination (NCD) of Epi proColon, Epigenomics’ blood test for colorectal cancer screening.
The proposed NCD is preliminary. According to the statutes, a 30-day public comment period will now begin, which will be used to further convince CMS of the benefits of Epi proColon in the fight against colorectal cancer.

Following the comment period, CMS will publish their final decision within 60 days. If the final decision is also negative, the Company will take the opportunity to appeal the decision.
