Update: National Clinical Trial Number Requirement

Effective Jan. 1, 2014, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is mandating submission of a clinical trial number to report claims for items and services in clinical trials, clinical studies, or registries that are required for coverage. Submission of this number was previously voluntary. More information is available in Medical Learning Network MM8401. Those who participate in trials or coverage-mandated registries (STS/ACC TVT Registry™ and the ICD Registry™) can locate relevant clinical trial numbers at clinicaltrials.gov.

Coverage with evidence development (CED) implantable cardioverter defibrillator procedures in the ICD Registry™ will use newly obtained clinicaltrials.gov identifier NCT01999140. CED transcatheter aortic valve replacement procedures in the STS/ACC TVT Registry™ will use clinicaltrials.gov identifier NCD01737528.
