Editor's Note

In its proposed rule, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) would give Medicare patients better access to innovative devices beginning next year, the July 30 MassDevice reports.

CMS also says it might pay more for “certain transformative new devices” for inpatients, using a new technology add-on payment to increase payment from 50% of the device cost to 65%.
