Topic Description:

Reimbursement is one of the most important factors in the success of a new medical device. This retrospective analysis will cover the market expectations, unexpected reimbursement challenges and market performance of a new, innovative product in spine surgery. This discussion will cover the three tenants of reimbursement- coding, coverage and payment, and the role that each of the players (surgeon societies, CMS, private payers and device companies) have in the process.
