Don’t Miss New and Revised LCDs

Always keep an eye out for new and revised Medicare local coverage determinations (LCDs) and article updates from Novitas Solutions. 

Novitas will reject claims that don’t adhere to LCDs, so be sure to stay abreast of any LCDs – as well as national coverage determinations (NCDs) from Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services – that affect your practice.

Codes Move From LCDs to Articles

You can do a search for LCDs on the Novitas website using keywords. Note that codes are no longer listed in the LCDs but are now in the corresponding LCD articles, which are linked at the bottom of an LCD document.
