Effective May 25, 2017, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a National Coverage Determination (NCD) to cover Supervised Exercise Therapy (SET) for beneficiaries with Intermittent Claudication (IC) for the treatment of symptomatic Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD). SET involves the use of intermittent walking exercise, which alternates periods of walking to moderate-to-maximum claudication, with rest. SET has been recommended as the initial treatment for patients suffering from IC, the most common symptom experienced by people with PAD.
