Medicare Coverage Database (MCD)

Future LCDs are available on the CMS MCD website:

Future LCDs

If a local coverage determination (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.

Looking for LCDs Converted to ICD-10?

A list of Local Coverage Determinations (LCDs) converted to ICD-10 is available on the LCDs by Contractor Index. Use the scroll box on the index to select your Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) and select the "Submit" button to view a list of states that the specified MAC services. You can then select your MAC name from the table to view the future translated LCDs.
