The Narrow Passage to Medicare Reimbursement: Where Commercialization Barriers Meet Patients’ Rights
Using the field of neuroprosthetics as a paradigm, this Comment explores the connection between technology manufacturers and patients, as well as the common links between the two groups' facially differing motivations. Part II offers a basic introduction to the neuroprosthetic industry and to Medicare's current regulatory environment. Part III frames the reimbursement problem as it exists in current policy. Part IV explains why Medicare beneficiaries themselves do not have a legally functional remedy, and Part V offers some potential solutions that may have a better chance of meeting patient, industry, and legislative goals.
