National Coverage Analysis (NCA)
This page displays your requested National Coverage Analysis (NCA). The document is broken into multiple sections. You can use the Contents side panel to help navigate the various sections.
When an NCD is under consideration, either a new review or a reconsideration, there are numerous documents that support the process. These documents are considered the NCA. They include tracking sheets to inform the public of the issues under consideration and the status (i.e., Pending, Closed) of the review, information about and results of MEDCAC (formerly known as MCAC) meetings, Technology Assessments, and Decision Memoranda that announce CMS's intention to issue an NCD. These documents, along with the compilation of medical and scientific information currently available, any FDA safety and efficacy data, clinical trial information, etc., provide the rationale behind the evidence-based NCDs.
