The Downloads page provides options to download a data set containing Local Coverage data (Articles and LCDs) or National Coverage data (NCDs and Public Comments for NCAs/CALs). For the Local Coverage data, separate download files are available for "All" or "Current" policies. The "All" version contains retired policies not contained in the "Current" version. Retired policies are those policies that are no longer in effect, but continue to display on the MCD.
Only the most current, in effect (or future effective) version of the documents are included in each data set. In some cases, the latest version may be a future modification already on file with CMS. Older versions available from the MCD Archive are not included in the data sets.
