The 2018 mid-term elections left a reshaped Congress, with nearly 100 new representatives and senators coming to Washington, DC. This much turnover has led to great opportunities for the Academy’s government relations department to build relationships with new members of Congress, many of whom have not held elected office before. The new class is the most diverse and the most educated in congressional history.

CODING AND REIMBURSEMENT | New Medicare LCD Process—What You Need to Know

Local coverage determination (LCD) policies issued by Medicare administrative contractors (MACs) serve as the workhorse of Medicare coverage policy. About 90 percent of coverage determinations are made through LCDs. Coverage policies include a defined list of services the insurer will cover and specific exclusions. Medicare provides coverage of services that are determined to be “reasonable and necessary” for Medicare beneficiaries. If a specific item or service is not covered under an LCD, this does not mean it isn’t covered. Claims may be adjudicated on a case-by-case basis.
