New booklet for using the Medicare Coverage Database

The searchable Medicare Coverage Database (MCD), contains all Medicare National Coverage Determinations (NCDs), National Coverage Analyses (NCAs) Local Coverage Determinations (LCDs), and local policy articles. NCAs include proposed NCD decisions. The database also includes several other types of national coverage policy-related documents, including Coding Analyses for Labs (CALs), Medicare Evidence Development & Coverage Advisory Committee (MEDCAC) proceedings, and Medicare coverage guidance documents.

The Medicare Learning Network (MLN) has produced a "how to" booklet that provides an overview of the MCD and teaches users how to use the search, index, report and download features.
