Item 8.01 Other Events

On May 30, 2024, five Medicare Administrative Contractors (“MACs”), Palmetto GBA, Celerian Group Company, National Government Services, Noridian Healthcare Solutions, and WPS Insurance Corporation, each individually published proposed local coverage determinations and related draft local coverage articles (collectively, the “Draft LCDs”) regarding Micro-Invasive Glaucoma Surgery (“MIGS”). While each of the Draft LCDs identify certain procedures as medically necessary in patients over the age of 18 for glaucoma management when the applicable coverage limitations are met, the Draft LCDs do not propose to adopt specific coverage criteria for canaloplasty in combination with trabeculotomy ab interno which is a procedural description associated with the Company’s OMNI® Surgical System (“OMNI”) nor goniotomy, which is a procedural description associated with the Company’s SION® Surgical Instrument (“SION”) technology.


If these Draft LCDs become effective in their current form, procedures for canaloplasty in combination with trabeculotomy ab interno and goniotomy procedures would continue to be eligible for Medicare coverage in the states covered by these MACs. The states covered by these five MACs accounted for an aggregate of approximately 62% of the Company’s Surgical Glaucoma revenue in 2023.


The Draft LCDs each propose to adopt non-coverage policies when an aqueous shunt or stent procedure is performed in combination with a surgical MIGS procedure (such as canaloplasty or goniotomy) at the same time of service in the same patient eye.


Each MAC will have a 45-day comment period on the Draft LCDs, wherein stakeholders may provide feedback on the policies via written responses and oral feedback during open meetings held during each comment period. At the conclusion of the comment period, each MAC will review and respond to comments received, and may make changes to the Draft LCDs before it is finalized within 365 days from the original publication date. Once an LCD is finalized, there is a 45-day notice period before the LCD can take effect.


The Company plans to continue to engage with each MAC, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, and the clinical societies in continued support of procedures performed with OMNI and SION.
