Syndicated report (135 pages) with the overview and statistics of key innovation funding and coverage with evidence development schemes in eight European countries
Innovative payment schemes are an important part of the reimbursement landscape for medical technologies. Two key types of schemes are unconditional innovation payment (when payment is provided for innovation unconditionally) and coverage with evidence development (when either financing for a study or coverage with the obligation to perform the study is provided to medical technology).
MTRC has developed an in-depth overview of the innovative payment schemes, active in 2021 in eight European countries, including detailed statistics about the activity of the schemes. This report is built on the 2018 report, sponsored by the Med Tech Europe, but it includes a significant revision of several sections, an update of all statistical information, and several completely new sections (G-BA Innovation Fund in Germany, New subsidy for promising care in the Netherlands, Article 51 of the Social Security Law in France, Med Tech Funding Mandate in England).
This report complements the series of MTRC analytical reports in the field of reimbursement for medical technologies, including reports on HTA for medical technologies in 2019 and funding frameworks and decisions for medical technologies.
Innovative payment schemes from Austria, Belgium, England, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Spain and Switzerland are included
Three unconditional innovation payment, 18 coverage with evidence development (CED) schemes are reviewed
Only schemes related to medical technologies and procedures are included. Pharmaceutical schemes are not considered
