Screening for Lung Cancer with Low Dose Computed Tomography
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a final national coverage determination that provides for Medicare coverage of Screening for Lung Cancer with Low Dose Computed Tomography (LDCT).
The coverage is effective immediately. “This is the first time that Medicare has covered lung cancer screening. This is an important new Medicare preventive benefit since lung cancer is the third most common cancer and the leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States,” said Dr. Patrick Conway, chief medical officer and deputy administrator for innovation and quality for CMS. Medicare will now cover lung cancer screening with LDCT once per year for beneficiaries who are age 55-77, and have an extensive smoking history of 30-pack years.

HHS Director Romaine Gilliland will return to retirement after an accomplished career in public service having worked in the Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation and Administrator of the Division of Welfare and Supportive Services.
“Richard has served as a key member of Nevada’s Health and Human Services team, has demonstrated extensive knowledge and focused leadership, and will bring these skills into his new position. The Department of Health and Human Services is our largest state agency and houses many of the essential programs necessary to help promote a healthy citizenry,” said Governor Sandoval.
Sandoval. “I would also like to thank Romaine Gilliland for his commitment to public service. Romaine selflessly left retirement and temporarily took the helm of DHHS last June during a time of transition, cultivating the department’s current leadership team,” Sandoval said.
