Vitamin B 12 Injection LCD Retirement - Effective March 7, 2014 Medicare/Noridian

Vitamin B 12 Injection LCD Retirement - Effective March 7, 2014

The following Local Coverage Determination (LCD) has been revised under contractor numbers 01111 (California), 01211 (Hawaii and Territories), 01311 (Nevada), 01911 (Former NO-CA, HI and Territories).

Medicare Coverage Database (MCD) Number/Contractor Determination Number: L33502
Policy Name: Vitamin B 12 Injection
Effective Date: 03/07/2014

NOTE: LCDs are retired due to lack of evidence of current need(s) for the education and/or edits or in some cases because the material is addressed by a National Coverage Determination (NCD), a coverage provision in a CMS interpretative manual, another LCD or an article.  Retirement does not mean that medical necessity has changed or that the LCD no longer reflects appropriate criteria. The guidance in the retired LCD may be helpful in assessing medical necessity.
