In December 2022, NHS England published a preliminary 2023/25 NHS Payment Scheme, which will replace the National Tariff Payment System from April 2023, and launched a consultation. The deadline for comments submission is January 27, 2023.
As in the previous year, all High Cost Device List categories will be excluded from the basic payment mechanism. Two new cardiovascular categories are proposed for inclusion in the 2023/24 High Cost Device List (Annex A NHS Payment Scheme prices workbook; Annex A will be updated and reissued for 2024/25):
- Antibacterial envelope for the cardiac implantable electronic device;
- Mitral valve repair and replacement devices: includes Mitraclip, Pascal, and Tendyne devices.
Both new categories are commissioned by NHS England, reimbursed centrally through the SSDP (Specialised Services Devices Programme), and should be ordered via the NHS Supply Chain Central Procurement Visible Cost Model (VCM) where available.
