Coverage Guidance

Coverage Indications, Limitations, and/or Medical Necessity

 

A given service or procedure may not be linked to a National Coverage Determination (NCD) or Local Coverage Determination (LCD). Assuming all other requirements of the program are met and absent specific coverage criteria outlined in an LCD or NCD, all procedures or services must meet the medically reasonable and necessary threshold for coverage as demonstrated by the performing provider or attending physician in the official medical record. The Noncovered Services LCD compiles services or procedures that have been addressed by the Medical Policy department as to the medically reasonable and necessary threshold for coverage. Certain services or procedures will not have specific level I or level II HCPCS coding. Such services or procedures would be coded as the appropriate unclassified code. Occasionally services or procedures will be identified by a specific level I (Category I or Category III CPT code) or level II HCPCS code. It is the expectation that physicians and allied providers code to specificity. Payment of a claim is not a coverage statement especially if payable codes were used to bypass the medical review of more specific Level I/Category I unlisted codes or Level I/Category III codes or level II HCPCS codes.

 

In determining if a service or procedure reaches the threshold for coverage, this contractor addresses the quality of the evidence per the program integrity manual in making its recommendation to non-cover a service, pending new information in the public domain. This recommendation is taken through the LCD development process (draft recommendation of noncoverage, 45-day comment period, CAC advisory meeting, open public meeting, finalization, and 45-day notice period). Any interested stakeholder can request a reconsideration of an LCD after the notice period. In the case of the Noncovered Services LCD the stakeholder will receive a list of the articles and related information in the public domain that were addressed by the Medical Policy department in making the noncoverage decision. If the stakeholder has new information based on the evaluation of the list, an LCD reconsideration can be initiated. It is the responsibility of the interested stakeholder to request the evidentiary list from the contractor and to submit the additional articles, data, and related information in support of their request for coverage. The request must meet the LCD reconsideration requirements outlined on the web site.

 

It is not unusual that there will be a paucity of information for an emerging technology or service, and the Medial Policy department may noncover a service as noted in this LCD awaiting information in the public domain on safety and efficacy based on the quality of evidence. Also this contractor may be silent in terms of LCD in regard to a service or procedure (such a procedure or service is not listed in the Noncovered Services LCD or has been removed from the Noncovered Services LCD). A service or procedure not addressed in the Noncovered Services LCD is not a positive coverage statement. Claims for such services assuming all other requirements of the program are met would always need to meet the medically reasonable and necessary threshold for coverage in a prepayment or post payment audit of the official medical record.

 

To summarize, emerging technologies that are billed as either an unlisted procedure code or, when applicable, a Category III CPT or HCPCS code the procedures are addressed as:

 

• Not medically necessary and no coverage per this LCD; or

• Medically necessary per certain criteria as indicated in the development and communication of a separate LCD; or

• Have no positive coverage statement (in other words, no active LCD) and in which case these services as reported by the applicable unlisted procedure code or Category III CPT/HCPCs code would have to meet the regulatory requirements as documented in the medical record. Such services could be audited on pre- payment or post-payment review.

 

Section 1862(a)(1)(A) of the Social Security Act precludes program payment for services not deemed to be medically reasonable and necessary. This section of the Act underpins all Medicare regulations. Any document issued by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) or any of its contractors, which contains statements regarding criteria for coverage and payment of any service (e.g., office visits, procedures, diagnostic tests, etc.) has as an underlying assumption that the service must comply with the requirements of

§1862(a)(1)(A). As a consequence, it is incumbent upon such providers to be sure the service they provide is medically necessary, even in the instance where the documentation that proves medical necessity is created and/or housed by an entity other than the performing provider.

 

In order to be covered and reimbursed, an item or service must meet several requirements. It must fall within a defined benefit category, it cannot be excluded from coverage, either by statute or policy, and it must be medically reasonable and necessary. In the absence of a NCD, discretion may be used to establish medical policy, currently known as LCDs. The purpose of this LCD is to create a working list of services and procedures that have been evaluated by the Medical Policy staff, and determined that the services listed below do not meet the reasonable and necessary criteria as defined in Section 1862 (a)(1)(A) of the Social Security Act. LCDs are based on the strongest evidence available. In order of preference, LCDs are based on:

 

Published authoritative evidence derived from definitive randomized clinical trials or other definitive studies, and General acceptance by the medical community (standard of practice), as supported by sound medical evidence based on:

• Scientific data or research studies published in peer-reviewed medical journals;

• Consensus of expert medical opinion (i.e., recognized authorities in the field); or

• Medical opinion derived from consultations with medical associations or other health care experts.

 

Acceptance by individual health care providers, or even a limited group of health care providers, does not indicate general acceptance by the medical community. Testimonials indicating such limited acceptance, and limited case studies distributed by sponsors with financial interest in the outcome, are not sufficient evidence of general acceptance by the medical community. The available published evidence must be considered and its quality shall be evaluated before a conclusion is reached.

 

A service or item is considered to be reasonable and necessary if it is:

• Safe and effective;

• Appropriate, including the duration and frequency that is considered appropriate for the service, in terms of whether it is:

◦ Furnished in accordance with accepted standards of medical practice for the diagnosis or treatment of the patient’s condition or to improve the function of a malformed body member;

◦ Furnished in a setting appropriate to the patient’s medical needs and condition;

◦ Ordered and furnished by qualified personnel

◦ One that meets, but does not exceed, the patient’s medical need; and

◦ At least as beneficial as an existing and available medically appropriate alternative.

 

NOTE: An Advance Beneficiary Notice (ABN) is required for items and services not covered due to being considered not medically reasonable and necessary. The beneficiary should be thoroughly educated about the benefits and risks of this item or service. If such notice is not given, providers may not shift financial liability for such items or services to beneficiaries should a claim for such items or services be denied by Medicare.

 

The LCD coding guidelines attachment lists the nationally noncovered services/procedures (see link at bottom of LCD).

Bill Type Codes:

 

Contractors may specify Bill Types to help providers identify those Bill Types typically used to report this service. Absence of a Bill Type does not guarantee that the policy does not apply to that Bill Type. Complete absence of all Bill Types indicates that coverage is not influenced by Bill Type and the policy should be assumed to apply equally to all claims.

Revenue Codes:

 

Contractors may specify Revenue Codes to help providers identify those Revenue Codes typically used to report this service. In most instances Revenue Codes are purely advisory. Unless specified in the policy, services reported under other Revenue Codes are equally subject to this coverage determination. Complete absence of all

 

Revenue Codes indicates that coverage is not influenced by Revenue Code and the policy should be assumed to apply equally to all Revenue Codes.
