GenomeDx Adds a National PPO to Make Available Decipher® Prostate Cancer Test

San Diego, September 25, 2014 – GenomeDx Biosciences today announced that it has entered into a contractual agreement with MultiPlan, Inc. for diagnostic laboratory testing. The agreement includes GenomeDx Biosciences’ participation in the MultiPlan Network, expanding access to the Decipher® Prostate Cancer Classifier to health plan members who access the more than 500,000 providers participating in the MultiPlan Network.

The Decipher prostate cancer classifier directly measures a patient’s biological risk of developing metastatic prostate cancer. Together with coverage from existing networks, the contract brings coverage of the Decipher prostate cancer test to over 190 million lives.

“We continue to pursue signing new PPO network agreements to further improve patient access to Decipher. Decipher has been demonstrated in studies to show how aggressive a patients’ prostate cancer is and, therefore, may help patients’ physicians make more informed decisions about the course of treatment following prostate cancer surgery,” said Doug Dolginow, MD, CEO of GenomeDx.

About Decipher

The Decipher® Prostate Cancer Classifier directly measures a patient’s biological risk of developing metastatic prostate cancer. By assessing the activity of multiple genomic markers associated with metastatic disease, Decipher provides information about the aggressiveness of a patient’s tumor – information distinct from that provided by PSA and other clinical tools. Already tested in over 2,000 patients, Decipher continues to demonstrate that it can accurately predict aggressive disease and direct treatment decisions for men with prostate cancer.

Decipher is covered by multiple private insurance plans and is available to eligible US patients through their physicians. To learn more about ordering the Decipher test please visit
