  • Volume leads to assignment of a CPT code by the American Medical Association
  • “Evidence based practice”
get it covered
Get It Covered
  • Definition of “covered” benefits
    • experimental
    • medical necessity (restorative)
  • Medicaid; DoD and VA

  • Medicare
    • a “leader” or “follower”?

ethical questions
Ethical Questions
  • Is an N=1 trial indicated for this patient?
    • Is the effectiveness really in doubt?
    • If Tx is effective, will it be continued in long term?
    • Is patient eager to collaborate?
ethical questions1
Ethical Questions
  • Is an N=1 trial feasible in this patient?
    • Rapid onset?
    • Does Tx cease to act soon after it is discontinued?
    • Is an optimal Tx duration feasible?
    • Can clinically relevant targets be measured?
    • Are the criteria for stopping the trial, sensible?
    • Should an unblinded run-in period be conducted?
practical questions
Practical Questions
  • Is an N=1 trial feasible in the clinician’s practice?
    • Will you be available to help the clinician?
    • Are strategies in place for interpreting the data?
  • Has the study been approved by the IRB?
  • What will happen to the device after the test?
  • Where will the results be

published?

prospective payment system pps
Prospective Payment System (PPS)

(National base rate)

x (local cost of inputs factor)

x (national case or procedure index)

= reimbursement per case or procedure

  • Incentive on facility is to find and use tools that will maximize clinical outcomes while still living within the reimbursement per case
