Are you an innovator… or a follower? Getting your device into the FDA’s Breakthrough Devices Program or Safer Technologies Program (STeP) for Medical Devices could mean the difference.

For inclusion, you must know the relevant eligibility criteria for participating and the benefits of each, as well as an understanding of submission timing and content requirements. What if you have two devices with the same intended use? Or a combination product?

Not to mention the reimbursement implications: the pathway for Medicare coverage of breakthrough devices is not completely clear and the delay of the Medicare Coverage of Innovative Technology (MCIT) program has strategic reimbursement considerations.

Kristin Davenport and Rujul Desai, both of counsel at Covington & Burling LLP, will share what you must know and do to get your devices included. Using their expertise from the Medical Devices and Diagnostics area of the firm’s Food, Drug and Device practice, they’ll also discuss associated reimbursement strategies and how MCIT fits into larger market access issues.
