National Government Services has issued a draft local coverage determination (LCD) regarding non-covered services. They are proposing to not reimburse for CPT code 97610 – Low frequency, non-contact, non-thermal ultrasound since it is considered investigational due to methodological limitations and small sample size in the published data. Comments on the proposed LCD will be accepted until March 22, 2014 and applies to all states served by NGS. To access the proposed LCD, click HERE.
