Optimal reimbursement of shaped wound dressings within the French reimbursement system.

Context: The medical supplier had shaped wound dressings that were falling into a reimbursement classification that meant the out-of–pocket expenses for patients was significantly higher than for competitor dressings, leading to fewer prescriptions by General Practitioners.
Actions: A reimbursement submission was prepared based on a new technique of measuring the surface area of shaped and 3-dimensional wound dressings, combined with minor manufacturing adjustments and a supplier’s guarantee of specifications. 
Outcome: The shaped wound dressings were listed in maximum size classifications, receiving maximum reimbursement prices.
