Medicare contractors issue local coverage determinations (LCDs) that delineate the primary and secondary diagnosis codes that the contractor will accept for claims billed by doctors of chiropractic. Closer to the date of ICD-10 implementation, contractors will issue updated LCDs delineating acceptable ICD-10 codes for chiropractic claims. ACA will provide more information about Medicare contractor efforts to transition to ICD-10 in the coming months.
