Czech Republic to Revamp Device Reimbursements

Jan. 30, 2018

The Czech Republic is revamping its medical device reimbursement system and preparing for implementation of the new EU device regulations.

The country’s system for reimbursing for the use of medical devices is failing in that it is based on codes provided by health insurance companies, the Ministry of Health said in a Jan. 22 announcement.

It intends to introduce a new reimbursement system this year and have it come into full force by 2019.
