2021 RIHN catalog for innovative laboratory tests published in France

Reimbursement of IVD tests has a complex environment in France, and it consists of the Nomenclature of Medical Biology Services (NABM), RIHN Nomenclature for innovative tests outside the Nomenclature of biology and anatomocytopathology, and the Supplementary list of medical biology and anatomocytopathology services. RIHN catalog includes innovative tests with the objective of testing their value prior to the integration into NABM. Tests are funded outside social security insurance via research and innovation budget (MERRI, part of MIGAC budget) distributed by the Ministry of Health. The Supplementary list includes tests, which were initially considered innovative, but for which a decision either about discontinuing reimbursement or about introduction in the NABM catalog should be made. The Supplementary list is also funded via the MERRI budget.

On March 22, the 2021 repository of innovative laboratory tests (RIHN) and the Supplementary list of medical biology and anatomocytopathology services were published. However, no new codes were included in the catalogs, and no codes were removed or transferred. In the Supplementary list, only minor modifications in the comments for the codes have been introduced.

The 2021 RIHN catalog and Supplementary list can be downloaded here.
