Future LCDs

Future Local Coverage Determinations (LCDs) are available on the CMS Medicare Coverage Database website.

If an LCD contains "Coding Guidelines," they are indicated by an asterisk (*) after the MCD Number.

  • Once you access the LCD, the "Coding Guidelines" can be found under the heading, "LCD Attachments" near the end of the document.
  • Note: All CPT/HCPCS codes listed are mentioned in the LCD, but are not necessarily subject to diagnosis codes or coverage criteria.
