ABSTRACT
The article reports on the announcement by the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services that it might reimburse the use of artificial heart devices for Medicare beneficiaries enrolled in the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved studies. According to Kerry Weems, acting administrator of CMS, their proposal relaxes a non-coverage policy which gives access to their beneficiaries and promotes evidence development through FDA-approved studies of this advanced technology.
