Hi All, This info is on the front page of vitamindcouncil.org. Insurance companies and Medicare are considering not covering Vitamin D testing. There are two emails to send---one to Medicare and one to Dr. Kimball, who is on the AMA board. Please see below or go to the website directly (whichever is easier). It is well worth your time and will take only about 5 minutes! THANK YOU! Warm wishes, Erika NOTEWORTHY NEWSPROPOSED RESTRICTIONS ON VITAMIN D TESTING Soon, Medicare's newly proposed guidelines for restrictions on vitamin D testing will be adopted by every major insurance company in the country.The restrictions would forbid screening, the most important use of the test. This means that although vitamin D deficiency treatment is still covered, your doctor will not be able to order the test to find out if you suffer from low vitamin D in the first place! We encourage people to send their comments to Medicare by filling out this form on their website [(www.highmarkmedicareservices.com/policy/form-comments.html) Website provided by Erika.] When filling out the form, the proposal's LCD number is DL30273. The name of the proposal is "Vitamin D Assay Testing."If you would rather send a letter, which is more effective, sent it to: Ms. Anna Gene Risoldi Senior Research Analyst Highmark Medicare Services 1800 Center Street, 1AL3 Camp Hill, PA 17089 Comments may also be sent to Dr. Daniel B. Kimball, Jr. at firstname.lastname@example.org. He is on the AMA board that is reviewing this policy.
