Acarix AB (publ) (ACARIX: FN Stockholm) today announced it will file for German reimbursementdirectly with the Federal Joint Committee (G-BA) for its CADScorSystem®.
Previously, Acarix was aiming for full reimbursement in Germany by the end of 2019, after initialdiscussions with relevant associations. However, a new legislation is underway which will impact thelocal reimbursement process and result in delays.
Acarix is now intensifying its contact with the Federal Joint Committee, G-BA, about the furtherpathway and has prepared a dossier for submission by the end of February, aiming for fullreimbursement. Thereafter, the authorities require eight weeks to assess the dossier and givefeedback on requirements and potential complementary data.
“Before new legislation was being considered, we were in line with our expected timeline for a late2019 reimbursement, but this will now be delayed. In order to keep momentum, we immediatelyinitiated a discussion process with the G-BA and will have more information by the end of April”, saidPer Persson, CEO of Acarix.
In parallel, Acarix has also commenced a dialogue with channels in relation to the larger Germanstatutory sick-funds, which independently may decide about reimbursing the CADScorSystem®. As alarge part of hospital expenses is funded by independent statutory sick-funds this activity couldsignificantly increase healthcare access to the CADScorSystem®.
Furthermore, private reimbursement is not affected by the above changes.
