BSD Medical's Cancer Treatment Systems Get an 80% Reimbursement Boost from Medicare

SALT LAKE CITY--(HSMN NewsFeed)--BSD Medical Corp. (AMEX:BSM ) today reported that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has issued the final rules for its Hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment System, resulting in a reimbursement rate increase of 80% for the hyperthermia treatment CMS codes performed as hospital outpatient procedures. (By comparison, CMS estimates that hospitals will receive an overall average increase of 3.8% for all outpatient procedures.) Outpatient procedures constitute the majority usage for BSD’s cancer systems. CMS reimbursement rates generally set the standard for the payment schedules used by commercial insurance carriers as well.

The new reimbursement rates will become effective January 1, 2008. BSD considers this increase in reimbursement a major step forward in its ongoing effort to commercialize its cancer therapy systems, increasing the financial incentive for hospitals to adapt to more effective cancer treatment modalities.
