AAAAI Reviews Proposed Medicare Policy Changes

In response to a request from members of the Pennsylvania Allergy Society, the AAAAI recently submitted comments to Novitas regarding the Medicare contractor’s proposed Local Coverage Determinations (LCDs) for Allergen Immunotherapy and Allergy Testing for Pennsylvania.  

Novitas covers Medicare policy administration in AR, CO, DE, LA, MD, MS, NJ, NM, OK, PA, TX, and Washington, DC and is accepting comments on proposed LCDs through March 5, 2015.

The AAAAI also subscribes to a service called the Policy Reporter, through which payer policies from private payers are tracked for trends and developments in payer coverage that may impact the practicing allergist.
