National Government Services has finalized several elements of its enhanced Medical Policy Center (MPC) search function on the NGSMedicare.com Web site. The following improvements are effective immediately:
- The MPC search function offers NGSMedicare.com-hosted search capability for all Part A, Part B, and federally-qualified health center users
- Users no longer are directed to the Medicare Coverage Database (MCD) at the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)
- Users now access all local coverage determinations (LCDs) and articles directly from the NGSMedicare.com Web site
The new search function provides greater flexibility and performance efficiency. Search queries and results remain within the NGSMedicare.com Web site.
