Medicare ICD Indications

This brochure contains an overview of the current Medicare covered indications for ICDs. Medicare coverage is the primary determining factor of whether an ICD procedure will be reimbursed by Medicare. Medicare coverage indications are not identical to the ACC/HRS physician practice guidelines. It is essential that both physicians and hospitals understand the Medicare coverage requirements to ensure appropriate reimbursement and avoid potential fraud, abuse, and compliance issues.
