Our Integrated Approach to Reimbursement Strategy

MCRA takes a big-picture approach when assessing reimbursement and market access strategy, considering the available coverage, coding, and payment pathways. This foundational assessment provides a thoughtful and detailed review of current payer coverage, along with coding and payment policies allowing the RHEMA team to help you identify the most strategic reimbursement pathway to support a strong market position for your technology.


MCRA can evaluate the scope of public and private payer coverage policies relevant to your technology and help you gain insight into coverage guidelines, coverage eligibility criteria, and potential barriers to coverage at specific health plans and key payer stakeholders, including:

  • Medicare

  • Top commercial health plans
