Thank you for your query.
Proposed LCD - Proposed LCD is a draft LCD policy which has been created but not yet activated, but will be activated soon when the complete data will be available.
Time (Proposed to active policy) - There is no specific period of time mentioned by CMS. Sometimes it takes a week or month or sometimes those policies get retired even before activated.
Update frequency - CMS updates LCD every week.
Kindly revert in case of further clarification.
