This online on-demand seminar gives a comprehensive understanding of the hospital and out-patient reimbursement landscape for medical devices in Luxemburg. Provided in the form of the presentation in Acrobat PDF
Luxembourg is a small country in western Europe.
From the market access perspective, it has a relatively simple structure, with hospitals being funded using a global budget principle but physicians (in both hospital and out-patient settings) being reimbursed using a fee-for-service model. The inclusion of novel procedures into the Nomenclature of medical services represents the key challenge of market access for medical technologies in Luxembourg.
We offer a seminar on critical elements of the hospital and out-patient reimbursement system for medical devices in Luxembourg that can guide your decision-making about the introduction of novel technologies into this market.
Key stakeholders are reviewed, including payers, policy-makers, and support bodies
Money flow and distribution of funds, payment models for hospital and ambulatory care
Structure, the use for reimbursement, process of update, stakeholders involved and timing for the Nomenclature of medical services
The specifics and the role of the health technology assessment, specifics of payment for services, provided abroad
