The EU reimbursement proceduresare not harmonized. They depend on the social legislation of each single member state. In Germany, the “Sozialgesetzbuch V” (SGB V) is authoritative for the corresponding procedure. So far, a general reimbursement for the ATMPs by the compulsory health insurance does not exist.

In our Clinic for Heart Surgery  the treatment method with stem cells for heart diseases has been classified as innovative therapy according to the DRG („Diagnosis Related Groups“)-Hospital Remuneration system into the group F96Z ( Stem cell transfusion and circulatory disturbance). For this treatment a case-based lump sum will be reimbursed by the health insurance. For this purpose, an individual application for each patient has to be filed to the corresponding health assurance. This implies that our patients can benefit from the stem cell therapy already now.
