Reimbursement in Germany for MiniMedTM 670G Insulin Pump System for Individuals with Type 1 Diabetes Announced

Medtronic plc today announced it has secured reimbursement for the MiniMedTM 670G insulin pump system with the German Federal Association of the Statutory Health Insurances (GKV-SV). The MiniMed 670G system is the only commercially available technology in the world that personalizes the delivery of basal insulin 24 hours a day based on real-time insulin needs, to maximize Time in Range for an individual living with type 1 diabetes. Time in Range is defined as the percentage of time spent in the optimal glycemic range of 70-180 mg/dL.

“We have already seen the difference the MiniMed 670G system has had for tens of thousands of people living with type 1 diabetes across the world who are now experiencing better clinical and quality of life outcomes,” said Dr. Robert Vigersky, chief medical officer, Global Medical and Clinical Affairs for the Diabetes Group at Medtronic. “Reimbursement in Germanywill increase the access of this life-changing technology to more individuals who would benefit from it.”

Type 1 diabetes is the most common metabolic disease in children and adolescents. In Germany alone about 30,500 individuals under the age of 19 are currently affected by type 1 diabetes and the trend is increasing.1

The reimbursement agreement announced today took effect on August 29, 2019. The date of announcement in the Federal Gazette (German: Bundesanzeiger) is expected in the coming weeks.
