All ICD-10 Local Coverage Determinations (LCDs) and associated
ICD-10 articles will be published on the Medicare Coverage Database
(MCD) no later than April 10, 2014. All non-ICD 10 related will be
published on the MCD no later than September 4, 2014. Note: All
LCDs and Articles will receive a new LCD/Article ID number. For
example, LCD ID 1234 might become LCD ID 4567.
The new LCD/Article ID number could have an impact on MACs local
systems, such as changing their Medicare Summary Notice to capture
the new LCD/Article ID number.
CMS has determined that although new LCD numbers will be
assigned to the ICD-10 LCD policies, the policies will not be
considered new policies. CMS considers this type of update to be a
coding revision that does not change the intent of
coverage/non-coverage within an LCD. Therefore, if a MAC only
translates ICD-9 codes to the appropriate ICD-10 code, the policy
does not need to be vetted through their Carrier Advisory Committee
or be sent through the public comment and notice process.
However, if a MAC decides to revise more than just the ICD-10
code(s), they will follow the normal LCD development process
outlined in the "Medicare Program Integrity Manual" (Publication
100-08, Chapter 13 (Local Coverage Determinations)) on the CMS website.
