LCD’s and NCD's are Medicare’s way of sharing their ideas related to certain procedures and services.  Because Medicare only reimburses for those procedures and services which they consider medically necessary, LCD’s and NCD's explain those circumstances and the rationale behind Medicare decisions.  While NCD’s have no geographical boundaries and apply to anywhere in the Country, LCD’s are geographically specific and are created and maintained by the Medicare carrier that adjudicates the claim in that area, so there can be difference LCD's and guidelines for the same procedures in different areas of the Country.

Join this session by expert speaker Lynn M. Anderanin, where she will share all of the websites and links for LCD’s and NCD’s and give tips on how to navigate through the determinations in the most time-efficient manner while obtaining the information that is needed.
