LIPID PROFILE MEDICAL NECESSITY (FREQUENCY LIMIT OF ONCE PER YEAR)

Please note that Lipid Testing falls under National Coverage Determination 190.23. The following is stated in this determination:

When monitoring long term anti-lipid dietary or pharmacologic therapy and when following patients with borderline high total or LDL cholesterol levels, it may be reasonable to perform the lipid panel annually. A lipid panel at a yearly interval will usually be adequate while measurement of the serum total cholesterol or a measured LDL should suffice for interim visits if the patient does not have hypertriglyceridemia.

Medicare will only cover Lipid testing once per year for monitoring of long-term anti-lipid dietary or pharmacologic therapy and when following patients with borderline high total or LDL cholesterol levels. If you order a Lipid test more frequently than once per year, you must provide a signed ABN and/or clinical notes showing why this testing was medically necessary.
