Ask the expert
The report presents a summary of reimbursement situation for open replacement of heart valves (aortic, mitral, tricuspid and pulmonary).
Report includes information about two types of prosthetic heart valves:
- biological valves
- mechanical prosthetic valves
Open replacement of heart valves will be analyzed in conjunction with open coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG).
The following indications will be considered:
- Aortic stenosis
- Mitral insufficiency
- Tricuspid insufficiency
- Pulmonary valve insufficiency
The only reimbursement within public / statutory health insurance systems is considered.
Report includes essential information about reimbursement and national funding, including:
- Brief overview of reimbursement system for medical devices
- Procedure coding for technology
- Diagnosis coding
- Payment mechanism for technology
- Reimbursement tariffs for technology
- Restrictions in indications or scenarios for use of technology
- Policy considerations by payers and policy-makers about technology
Reimbursement information is provided for the following geographies:
- England (UK)
