AAN Responds to CMS' Proposed National Coverage Determination (NCD) Change for Carotid Artery Stenting

March 9, 2007


On February 1, 2007, CMS announced a proposal to extend coverage of percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) of the carotid artery concurrent with stenting. The AAN worked in collaboration with the Neurovascular Coalition (NVC) to submit comments on the proposed changes and also put forward our own letter to CMS outlining AAN concerns with portions of the proposal.
