College of American Pathologists (CAP) to Engage With Lawmakers on LCD Reform

The LCD process continues to be a concern for pathologists and is in need of reform. The CAP commended the re-introduction of the Local Coverage Determination Clarification Act of 2017 last month in the Senate. The bill would improve transparency and accountability when Medicare contractors implement LCD policies for physician services provided to Medicare beneficiaries. In the current legislation, the CAP calls for coverage decisions to be made by qualified health experts through a transparent process based on sound medical evidence.
