Open Meetings

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) assigned Palmetto GBA the task of developing local coverage determinations (LCDs) for processing and reviewing Medicare claims for Jurisdictions J and M.

Palmetto GBA will periodically host open in-person meetings in South Carolina to discuss the scientific evidence underlying proposed LCDs. Interested parties from within the jurisdiction may attend and orally present information related to the proposed LCDs. Palmetto GBA requires all presenters to also submit their oral comments through the formal comment process.

The meetings will be recorded and will be available here following the meetings for those unable to attend. Information regarding specific meeting dates and times will be published below and distributed through the Palmetto GBA listserv.
