Future Local Coverage Determinations (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.
