Course Description

410.708 - Medical Product Reimbursement

Medical products brought to market need to have a sound payment, coding, and coverage strategy.  Medicare covers over 100 million Americans and it leads the way in all United States insurance policies.  This course will provide insight into how medical product reimbursement works and allow students to understand how the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) considers medical products for coverage, coding, and payment.  We'll review the history of Medicare coverage and the regulations.  We'll focus primarily on strategies used to get reimbursement for medical products-both at the national and local levels.
