Answer: Each time the LCD is revised the previous version, which is located at the end of the LCD, is marked “Superseded.” In the absence of a national coverage policy, an item or service may be covered at the discretion of the Medicare contractors based on a local coverage determination (LCD). All CPT and ICD-10 CM codes shall be removed from LCDs and placed in billing and coding articles or Policy Articles that are to be published to the MCD and related to the LCD.
