Noridian Healthcare Solutions, along with Palmetto GBA, hosted a Multi-Jurisdictional Contractor Advisory Committee (CAC) Meeting via teleconference on November 17, 2022, from 2–4 p.m. CT. Discussions focused on Molecular Diagnostic Testing for Acute Rejection in Heart or Lung Allografts.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) assigned Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) the task of developing Local Coverage Determinations (LCDs). The purpose of the CAC meeting is to provide a formal mechanism for healthcare professionals to be informed of the evidence used in developing the LCD and promote communications between the MAC and the healthcare community.

The CAC panel was asked to discuss the clinical literature related to Molecular Diagnostic Testing for Acute Rejection in Heart or Lung Allografts and rate their confidence in a series of Key Questions. Discussions occurred between CAC panelists and Contractor Medical Directors. The public was invited to attend; however, questions from the public were not entertained.

Interested stakeholders are invited to listen via teleconference; however, advance registration is required. Registration is available at CVENT Heart or Lung Allografts.

Once registered you will receive the teleconference information via email prior to the meeting. Lines will remain muted throughout the conference except for the invited CAC panelists and the MAC hosts.
