The most significant, recent outcomes of the expert reimbursement work have been the acquiring of two of the main GIRS clients by larger companies. “We are delighted that two of our main clients were acquired by larger companies partly due to the expert support of their flagship Products and the sound reimbursement strategies that were developed to support these Products that increased the value of these companies and made them attractive options for buyouts,” said Ms. Thomas
The client testimonial on the website states that:
The GIRS Payer Advocacy Compass™ supports led to increased market access for our flagship product, improved patient access, provider satisfaction and reduction of confusion, and eventually we were acquired by a large company. Due to the excellent and thorough Landscape Assessment that lead to Payer Advocacy and clinical outcomes strategies, our company was able to obtain Medicare coverage for a biologic in one year after experiencing non – coverage for eight years. Our company was acquired by a large company due to the reimbursement support we received from GIRS for our flagship product. We are continuing to work with the GIRS Payer Advocacy Compass™ team in other payer markets and for additional products.
