Is a new code central to your reimbursement strategy? You can’t afford missteps that delay this complex, lengthy process. We’ll lead you through it.
What Is A New Code Worth To Your Business?
Device and drug manufacturers often assume that a new code is like money in the bank. However, reimbursement also depends on multiple coverage and payment variables. If these basics aren’t in place, a code is of little use.
Nevertheless, codes are the key to payment. If existing codes don’t support your medical technology, a new code may be your best option. But be prepared — obtaining a code is never easy. You’ll want to get the process right, right from the start.
