Poland is one of the most 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. Inclusion of the new procedures into the system follow the complex evaluation procedure and the final decision is made by the Ministry of Health.

There are some important developments in the system, including a national project on Hospital Network, which will also lead to a change of the payment model for hospital care.

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