We are excited about the partnership with IHP, and look forward to marketing with them the LDex ® test throughout their national network.” said Greg Brown, ImpediMed’s CEO. He went on to say, “With so many payers and delivery providers of US healthcare, each managed care contract and every coverage statement from an insurer, builds yet another brick in the wall for our target of achieving effective reimbursement for L-Dex® testing”. Across the United States, ImpediMed is continuing discussions with a variety of managed care organisations, public and private health insurance providers and the provider networks contracted with to provide medical services. The Company sees other opportunities to provide reimbursement by working with PPO’s, Independent Physician Associations (IPA’s), Health Maintenance Organizations (HMO’s), medical groups and the major health insurance providers.
