Transcatheter Mitral Valve Repair (TMVR)

Transcatheter mitral valve repair (TMVR) is a procedure used to treat mitral regurgitation which is the most common type of heart valve insufficiency in the country. 

CMS issued a Medicare National Coverage Determination on August 7, 2014 which allows for coverage of TMVR under Coverage with Evidence Development (CED) with certain conditions.  The complete determination is available on our website.  As part of CED, we are identifying below the Medicare approved registry and Medicare approved clinical trial which have been reviewed and determined to meet the requirements of coverage.
