On December 17, 2022, the Ministry of Health and Prevention published an Order in the Official Journal of the French Republic on the transitional coverage for the renal denervation catheter SYMPLICITY SPYRAL from Medtronic.
Transitional coverage of certain products and services (prise en charge (PEC) transitoire), according to article L165-1-5 of the Social Security, is a pathway for obtaining temporary reimbursement for CE-marked, presumably innovative medical devices intended for the treatment of rare or serious diseases (or compensation for a disability), which are falling with the scope of the LPPR. This mechanism allows reimbursement of medical devices for one year (with a possibility of renewal), with the goal of establishing additional evidence, before submitting an application for regular reimbursement via the LPPR list.
Renal denervation catheter SYMPLICITY SPYRAL is registered under the LPPR code 5267618 "Renal denervation catheter, SYMPLICITY SPYRAL" with conditions described in the Order and the tariff of €4,298.4.
