Medicare Coverage Determinations

When Medicare changes coverage rules

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) sometimes change the coverage rules that apply to an item or service. When this happens, CMS issues a National Coverage Determination (NCD). It tells us:

  • What benefits and services are covered
  • What benefits and services are changing
  • What Medicare will pay for an item or service

See our NCD notices below.
