In October product group 06 for irradiation devices was updated.
The medical technical aids register (Hilfsmittelverzeichnis, HMV) is divided into 45 product groups in total. Home-care products listed here are reimbursed more easily by health insurances. In order to have a product listed there, an application must be submitted to the National Association of Statutory Health Insurance Funds (GKV-Spitzenverband, GKV) and the requirements made must be documented. The product groups will be updated and the requirements adjusted on given occasions. Manufacturers of listed products must subsequently prove that they also comply with the updated requirements, otherwise the products entries will be deleted.
The HMV update of product group 06 for irradiation devices was pubished in October. There are currently 11 UV light combs listed in PG06. From our point of view, the changes made in this update are manageable. Among other things, terms were clarified and inapplicable items such as the description of devices other than UV irradiation were deleted. When submitting an application, product samples now must be submitted with protective goggles and the previously required operating hours counter is no longer explicitly required.
