When a Medicare LCD is "retired" does it mean that the LCD is no longer in effect?
Sounds like a silly question, but the Medicare representative (Noridian) told me that just because the policy is retired doesn't mean it isn't active. The only reason they retire them is because there have been no issues with the policy for the past 2-5 years.
Another source told me that if it is retired, it is no longer in effect.
If any one has any information on this it would really be helpful.
