NEW YORK, April 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Reimbursement for In Vitro Diagnostic (IVD) Tests

http://www.reportlinker.com/p02076276/-Reimbursement-for-In-Vitro-Diagnostic-IVD-Tests.html

What is the procedure, for establishing reimbursement for an IVD test product? What companies have been successful and how? What changes will IVD makers face in the near-term. This Kalorama Information report, Reimbursement for In Vitro Diagnostic Tests, answers these questions and provides authoritative data for IVD business planners.

One of the critical factors for the success of an IVD product is reimbursement. Reimbursement is a critical component of the health care landscape and will continue to have a major impact on the continued usage of established products as well as product innovation and the market success of new technologies since products without solid reimbursement will not achieve widespread utilization and/or will not provide the revenues for their developers to continue to introduce new products.

This report, Reimbursement for In Vitro Diagnostic (IVD) Tests examines the U.S. reimbursement system for IVD tests, focusing on key issues of current concern to industry. It covers only commercialized tests, specifically excluding those that are developmental or used primarily for research purposes.

As part of its analysis, the report has the following:

Explanation of the Process for Reimbursement of IVD Products Under Medicare
Upcoming Medicare Reimbursement Cuts
Recent FDA Approvals of IVD Devices
Oversight of LDTs, Pilot IVD Triage Program, UDI Rule and Other Regulatory Initiatives
Office of the General Inspector Recommendations
ICD Codes, Laboratory NCD Codes and CLFS Test Codes
Gap-Fill Rates for Molecular Diagnostics
The Assessment of Novel Tests
Case Studies of Successful IVD Products and Lessons for New Entrants
The key open issues facing IVD reimbursement may be broadly grouped into four categories that comprise budget tightening, including Medicare cost cutting; outdated CLFS; FDA initiatives encompassing both rulemaking and new regulatory pathways; and challenges assessing new tests.

Historical information for this report was gathered from a wide variety of published sources including company reports and filings, government documents, legal filings, trade journals, newspapers and business press, analysts' reports and other sources. Interviews with company representatives and other experts were conducted to capture the perspectives from industry participants' point of view and assess trends. Case studies of successful reimbursement strategies are included to illustrate how product developers obtain reimbursement for new IVD tests.
