Medical Devices Reimbursement Market

The Global Medical Devices Reimbursement Market is driven by Increasing Expenditure on Healthcare

Medical devices are an integral part of modern healthcare that helps enhance patient outcomes through minimally invasive treatment and diagnosis. Key medical devices such as MRI scanners, CT scanners, ultrasound machines, pacemakers, orthopedic implants and wheelchairs help practitioners deliver improved patient care effectively. However, their purchase involves significant upfront costs for various stakeholders such as hospitals, clinics and end-users. Reimbursement services play a crucial role in covering part or whole of the device costs from government agencies or private insurers as per the terms of health insurance plans. This provides the necessary funds for continuous purchase and upgrade of life-saving medical technologies.

The global Medical Devices Reimbursement Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 543.4 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 8.6% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market key trends:

One of the key trends driving growth in the medical devices reimbursement market is the rising preference for value-based reimbursement models. Governments and private payers across countries are shifting from fee-for-service payment models to value-based arrangements that tie reimbursement amounts to clinical outcomes and quality of care delivered. This encourages healthcare providers to choose high-quality medical devices that improve patient outcomes while containing overall treatment costs through lower readmission rates and faster recovery times. Over the forecast period, more stakeholders in the medical devices reimbursement market are expected to adopt pay-for-performance and bundled payment systems.
