Hip implants – November 2014
The objective of this consultation phase was to respond to the stakeholders’ comments submitted to the French National Authority for Health (Haute Autorité de santé - HAS) after the new proposed nomenclature concerning the conditions for the reimbursement of hips implants was published in the Official Gazette. The HAS recommendations will support the decision of the French National Insurance Funds (FNIF) regarding the definitive nomenclature and pricing for this category of medical devices.
Systematic literature review was performed on four types of hips implants and discussed by a multidisciplinary working group, as well as issues raised during the consultation phase and which didn’t require a literature analysis. The ensuing report was submitted to the relevant HAS Committee for validation.
