Reimbursement education

Reimbursement education.As we bring you new and improved products, we also do whatever we can to help you gain appropriate reimbursement. To that end, we meet with representatives of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) regularly to discuss new technologies to secure appropriate reimbursement. Our product launch process typically includes educational materials for you about reimbursement for our new technologies.

In this section, you will find webinars we have developed to help you learn more about securing appropriate reimbursement for our advanced technologies. New materials are always in development. Check here periodically to find new and improved information.
