Inogen Announces Reimbursement for Inogen One G3 Product in France

Inogen Inc., a Goleta-based medical technology company offering innovative respiratory products for use in the home-care setting, announced Tuesday that the Inogen One G3 portable oxygen concentrator has received coverage for reimbursement within France.

The Department of Social Affairs and Health in France has added the Inogen One G3 to its list of reimbursable oxygen therapy products and services, as published in the Official Journal of the French Republic.

According to the publication, the Inogen One G3 is classified under long-term oxygen therapy for ambulation and requires a physician prescription. In like manner, the Inogen One G2 portable oxygen concentrator received similar coverage in France in mid-2013.

"Inogen's mission to provide freedom and independence to oxygen therapy users is a global mission," said Raymond Huggenberger, Inogen CEO."We're pleased with the decision by the French authorities to grant reimbursement coverage to the Inogen One G3 and by doing so, help improve access to innovative and independence restoring products for oxygen therapy users throughout France."

France is estimated to be the third-largest market in Europe, according to a research report by Global Industry Analysts Inc.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
