Humana Upgrades CardioNet System to Covered Insurance Benefit Status

September 3, 2008 - CardioNet Inc. said today Humana upgraded the CardioNet System to a “covered benefit” status, from its previous category by Humana as “experimental-investigational.”

Humana’s 11 million covered members will have access to coverage for prescriptions for the CardioNet System effective Sept. 1, 2008, subject to normal insurance policy guidelines. Humana’s decision was impacted by the peer-reviewed results of a 300-patient randomized clinical trial published in the March 2007 issue of the Journal of Cardiovascular Electrophysiology, demonstrating that the CardioNet System provided a significantly higher diagnostic yield compared to traditional loop event monitoring for patients who had non-diagnostic Holter monitoring.

The Humana decision follows a similar decision in March from another large third-party payor representing 16 million people.
