Proposed Local Coverage Determinations (LCDs)

The Proposed LCD Comment Period is now CLOSED.

Proposed LCDs are new policies or revisions to existing policies that restrict and/or involve a substantive change to existing LCDs. Novitas is required by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to provide a 45-day public comment period on proposed LCDs. View the proposed LCDs, their status, and details on how to provide comments during the open comment period by clicking the following link.

Contractor Advisory Committee (CAC) Meetings

The CAC provides a formal mechanism for healthcare professionals to be informed of the evidence used in developing the Local Coverage Determination (LCD) and promotes communications between the Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) and the healthcare community. CAC members will serve in an advisory capacity as representatives of their constituency to review the quality of the evidence used in the development of the LCD. The final decision on all issues rests with the Contractor Medical Directors (CMDs).
