Search for LCD by diagnosis code FAQ
Q: Can I search for LCDs by diagnosis code?
A. Yes, instead of going to an outside website, providers can locate LCDs by searching procedure codes, keywords, or International Classification of Diseases 10th revision codes (ICD-10s) using First Coast’s own website search bar, located at the top of every page. All of the LCD data is on the First Coast website, making it simple to find the LCD providers are researching.
Simply enter a procedure code, keyword, or ICD-10 code into the website search bar and search “LCDs only” to find the matching results. This search function replaces the multiple steps currently required by other methods, and lets providers locate the corresponding LCDs by using First Coast’s own LCD data.
In addition, you can search for LCDs by diagnosis code on the CMS website. The Medicare coverage database allows you to search for LCDs in a variety of ways including keywords, “L number,” CPT/HCPCS procedure codes, and ICD-10 diagnosis codes. Search the Medicare coverage database . For more information, please review the Finding First Coast LCDs and related coverage information -- how-to guide.
