This month, the Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) have released draft revisions to their epidural local coverage determinations (LCDs). The revisions follow an LCD review process which included a multi-jurisdictional Carrier Advisory Committee (CAC) meeting held in February. Your Academy had representation at the CAC meeting who provided feedback on literature support for epidural procedures at that time.
The full language of the draft/proposed LCD can be found on the CMS website. Your Academy is actively working on comments in response to the revisions. The MACs have individual deadlines for comment submission ranging from late July to early August.
