LCD ID number: L37800 (Florida/Puerto Rico/U.S. Virgin Islands)
The local coverage determination (LCD) for allergen immunotherapy was developed to address coverage criteria, coding requirements, documentation requirements, and utilization parameters for allergen immunotherapy. The LCD also addresses providers eligible to perform this service. Furthermore, in creating this new LCD, the current LCD for allergen immunotherapy (L33804) will be retired when this new LCD becomes effective.
This new LCD is effective for services rendered on or after October 18, 2018. LCDs are available through the CMS Medicare coverage database at https://www.cms.gov/medicare-coverage-database/overview-and-quick-search.aspx.
A coding article for an LCD (when present) may be found by selecting “Related Local Coverage Documents” in the “Section Navigation” drop-down menu at the top of the LCD page.
