Co-funded study of low-intensity pulsed ultrasound for the treatment of pseudarthroses initiated in Germany

On December 16, 2021, the Federal Joint Committee (G-BA) announced the start of the procedure concerning a co-funded study in accordance with §137e of the Social Code Book V (SGB V) for a low-intensity pulsed ultrasound for the treatment of pseudarthroses.

The manufacturer submitted the final (updated) application for the abovementioned co-funded study on September 15, 2021.

Co-funded studies in Germany are regulated in §137e of the SGB V. The framework applies to diagnostic or therapeutic methods that show a potential medical benefit, but the available evidence is not sufficient to decide on inclusion as a benefit within the statutory health insurance. Specific criteria define which methods are eligible for co-funded studies. Manufacturers have the possibility to request a paid consultation by the G-BA to get guidance in the application process for a co-funded study.

The full details in German can be found here.
