Poland is one of the fastest-growing economies and markets in Europe, and it is of very high interest to the Med Tech industry.

The Polish reimbursement system is very complicated, including two types of DRGs, several add-on reimbursement categories, and highly specialized care. The inclusion of the new procedures into the system follows the complex evaluation procedure, and the final decision is made by the Ministry of Health.

We built this seminar to help develop a better understanding of the market access landscape in Poland and to inform better business decisions on whether to go to this market or not and, if yes, how to approach it.
