Get to know the German medical reimbursement system and the different relevant parties. Obtaining reimbursement is often a critical step for successful market entry into German market.

In 2019, Germany launched DiGA, a so called Apps on prescription, for digital health application. In 2022, DiPA (Digital Nursing Application) was introduced. The approved applications are listed and visible for everyone in the DiGA and DiPA directories. In this webinar you will also hear about the other options to get your device into the reimbursement system.

This webinar is a great opportunity to gain understanding of the German reimbursement landscape and what you need to consider when entering the German market. You will learn about the different reimbursement options, and what it means from a Finnish health tech company’s perspective.
