National Coverage Determinations

National Coverage Determinations (NCDs) describe the circumstances for Medicare coverage nationwide for a specific medical service, procedure, or device. NCDs generally outline the conditions for which a service is considered to be covered, or not covered, under §1862(a)(1) or other applicable provisions of the Social Security Act (that is, a determination as to whether the service is reasonable and necessary).
