Developing a Reimbursement Strategy for Your Medical Device, Product or Service
Sponsored by Drexel University Center for Graduate Studies
Securing adequate reimbursement from payers on a new device is a prerequisite for achieving commercial success for medical technology companies. Reimbursement planning and analysis should begin at the earliest stages of the product development process, and continue through the entire product life cycle. In this seminar, reimbursement professionals recount their experiences, discuss how they address difficult reimbursement issues, and extract the lessons that every medical technology company needs to learn. We will also examine the impact of Obamacare on reimbursement with emphasis on the Affordable Care Act.
