Welcome to KBA’s Reimbursement Blog. Our purpose is to provide an educational forum for busy medical device professionals. On a daily basis, we monitor the Federal Register, CMS, AMA, professional society and leading payer websites for announcements about medical device codes, coverage and/or reimbursement changes. When we find something interesting, this forum provides us with an opportunity to share it with our colleagues. Through the years, we’ve learned that knowledge is power!
What differentiates KBA from other reimbursement consultants is our direct hands-on experience with medical device sales and marketing for more than 25 years. KBA was there for the beginning of laparoscopic surgery in the early 1990s, for the explosion of minimally invasive cardiac surgery in the mid-1990s, and percutaneous innovations in spine surgery in the early 2000s. We know how to translate policy into practical business solutions. While we enjoy researching health policy, we are known for our ability to anticipate changes and incorporate them into our client’s strategic business plans. In the area of medical device coding, coverage and reimbursement, what you don’t know can definitely hurt your bottomline. Through this blog, we want to share education and information about the complexities of U.S. healthcare financing and delivery. Consider this a quick “heads-up” on a new development that will soon impact medical device sales and marketing.
We hope you find a practical pearl of wisdom for your medical device. If you do, please let us know!
