We submitted the final report with our application to CMS in March 2023, and we remain hopeful for a favorable outcome. If approved, reimbursements could begin as early as October 1 of this year. The new agreement with UPPI takes into consideration approval from CMS and provides for modifications that consider the opportunities afforded through reimbursement.”
