    Go down to the heading Coverage and click on Medicare Coverage Determination Process
    Then in the LT hand box click on Local Coverage Determinations
    Then scroll down and I usually click on LCD's by state.
    Then click your state and hit submit,
    then click on which Medicare for outpatient procedures so for me its mcare part B.

    Then in the LT hand box click on search
    Then where it says Geographic Area put in your state then type in 20610 in the CPT/HCPCS code box then hit search now
    Scroll all the way down to the bottom where you will see a heading in bold that says LCD and click on L30149
    scroll down hit accept
    Then that is where it will tell you which icd-9 codes are medically necessary for that procedure code.
