Have you heard that effective November 12, 2020, both the enteral nutrition and parenteral nutrition local coverage determination (LCD) and related policy articles (PA) are retiring? The DME MACs, CGS, and Noridian Medicare released the news on October 12.

What does this mean for you? 

For claims with dates of service (DOS) prior to Nov. 12, 2020, the LCD is applicable. 

For claims with DOS on or after Nov. 12, 2020, refer to the National Coverage Determination (NCD) and the most recent articles published for Correct Coding and Billing for each category.     

According to the DME MACs, more information will be forth coming.
