(Application procedure in SHI and PHI)


EPC HealthCare supports you in designing a promising application as part of your market access strategy. We ensure that the application is submitted in due form and time and monitor the application for you until a decision is made by the responsible institutions.

Almost all applications, whether for drugs or medical devices, have a formal form and a largely standardized application procedure. Nevertheless, there is enough leeway to make applications successful.


Applications from A to Z


Below the laws, the conditions of the regulatory institutions prevail. The legislator has delegated these tasks to the relevant institutions. Consequently, in the outpatient and inpatient sectors, specific regulatory requirements and processes have to be met if reimbursement for products is to be achieved.

The applications for medicinal products and medical devices are partly identical, but in some respects completely different. There are official forms and a regulated application procedure for almost all applications. Nevertheless, there is sufficient room for improvement to ensure that applications are successful.
