Proposed local coverage determination: Contractor advisory committee (CAC) meetings

CAC meeting registration is now closed. Registration will open approximately two weeks prior to the next meeting. Please watch this site for further information on the next meeting to be posted.
The next Jurisdiction N (JN) CAC Meeting is tentatively scheduled as follows:

February 16, 2023
CAC members, stakeholders, and other interested parties
Will be opened two weeks prior to the next meeting
*CAC meeting dates, locations, and times are subject to change.
All JN CAC members as well as the public (non-CAC members) are welcomed to attend via webinar.
The CAC provides a formal mechanism for healthcare professionals to be informed of the evidence used in developing the local coverage determination (LCD) and promotes communications between the MAC and the healthcare community. CAC members will serve in an advisory capacity as representatives of their constituency to review the quality of the evidence used in the development of an LCD. The final decision on all issues rests with the Contractor Medical Directors (CMDs).
The CAC is used to supplement the MAC’s internal expertise and to ensure an unbiased and contemporary consideration of “state of the art” technology and science.
Please read our CAC Meeting Fact Sheet for more details.

CAC meeting minutes

All CAC Meetings will be recorded. You may listen to the audio recording and/or read the written transcript for prior meetings here.
