In line with Episurf Medical’s plan to achieve private health sector reimbursement, the Episealer® procedure and products have been approved for payment in the UK Spire Hospitals and the Dutch health insurance companies, VGZ and Multiorg. This means that surgeons wishing to perform the Episealer® procedure are approved to operate and the procedure and devices will be paid for.
Further, the Belgium reimbursement authority RIZIV – The National Institute for Health and Disability Insurance – has approved the Episealer® Femoral Twin implant. This means the entire Episealer® Portfolio comprising Condyle Solo, Trochlea Solo and Femoral Twin is now approved for payment by the Belgium authority.
“Reimbursement approval across public and private healthcare providers is a key factor in driving surgical adoption and product sales across our European markets”, says Rosemary Cunningham Thomas, CEO of Episurf Medical.
