    I am new to this CPT code. Can anyone offer advice on LCD's for 61790? I have looked on the medicare website and cannot locate anything.

    Our coding website lists one LCD only; it's from Palmetto for South Carolina Jurisdiction, LCD # L30385. Clicking on that link takes me to the CMS website. The LCD only addresses "co-management of inpatient and outpatient surgical procedures..." and I'm betting that's not what you need. That's all I find--an LCD addressing medical necessity of that code in particular may not exist.
