Based on recommendations from ASNC, SNMMI and ACC, Medicare’s Administrative Contractor for Florida, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands has announced that it will expand its local coverage policy for cardiac PET procedures. This should bring their policy in line with the ASNC/SNMMI Position Statement on Cardiac PET.
The decision is not final until the LCD is published to the Medicare Coverage Database. Members are encouraged to subscribe to the First Coast eNews, which includes the earliest possible alert when a revised LCD goes into effect. See https://medicare.fcso.com/Header/137525.asp to sign up.
