Contractor Advisory Committee (CAC) - JE Part B
Contractor Advisory Committee (CAC)
On this page, view the below CAC related information.
- Upcoming Meetings and Related Documents
- Previous Meetings and Related Documents
- A formal mechanism for physicians to be informed of and participate in the development of an LCD in an advisory capacity
- A mechanism to discuss and improve administrative policies that are within carrier discretion; and
- A forum for information exchange between Noridian and physicians.
The focus of the CAC is to discuss Proposed Local Coverage Determinations (LCDs), issues presented in each jurisdiction, and administrative policies. The Noridian CAC does not address issues and policies related to private insurance business, is not a forum for peer review, and is not an avenue for discussion of individual cases, claims, or providers.
While the CAC reviews all draft LCDs, the final implementation decision about LCDs rests with the Contractor Medical Directors (CMDs) who jointly develops the agenda with the CAC members.
The role of each CAC member is to serve to improve the relations and communication between Medicare and the physician community. This includes disseminated draft LCDs and information about the Medicare program and discuss inconsistent or conflicting Medicare medical review policies. CAC members are not paid for their services.
Meetings occur as needed for the development of LCDs. Non-CAC members may participate in listen-only mode via teleconference.
There are currently no scheduled meetings.
