On September 1, 2021, the Institute for Hospital Remuneration Systems (INeK) announced the start of the application process according to §6 (2) KHEntgG (New Examination and Treatment Methods, NUB) for 2022. The NUB requests can only be made via the InEK data portal. The deadline for the application submission is October 31, 2021.
Germany provides a possibility for short-term, intermediate reimbursement for new and innovative technologies (NUB) to bridge the time while cost data is collected and analyzed and until they can be appropriately included in the DRG system. NUB funding can be considered for devices that fully or partially constitute a new method if they are significantly more expensive than current standards and therefore do not reach full coverage through grouping with existing DRGs. Each NUB funding agreement is only valid for one year but can be renewed annually.
The full details in German can be found here.
