The Local Coverage Determination (LCD) for Medicine: Physical Therapy – Outpatient (L30009) was recently updated on November 20, 2012 during the Annual LCD Review, and on November 25, 2012 with CPT code descriptor changes for 97140 , 97530 , 97535 , 97537 and 97755 based on the Annual CPT/HCPCS Update for 2013. Please Note: During the updates, Tennessee – MAC Part A (Contract 10301) was inadvertently deselected from the LCD. Tennessee – MAC Part A is being added back to the LCD with no change in effective date or break in coverage. The LCD will be viewable from the Medicare Coverage Database as of December 6, 2012. In the meantime, the LCD can be viewed under Alabama – MAC Part A and Georgia – MAC Part A.
