Aclarion Announces Initial Payer Coverage of Nociscan by AXA throughout Greater London, UK

AXA is the 2nd largest provider of private medical insurance in the UK.

Payer coverage is the most important catalyst Aclarion can achieve to drive volume and revenue.

AXA represents the first insurance company to approve payment for Nociscan.

 

Aclarion, Inc., (“Aclarion” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: ACON, ACONW), a healthcare technology company that is leveraging biomarkers and proprietary augmented intelligence algorithms to help physicians identify the location of chronic low back pain, announced today their initial payer coverage of Nociscan by AXA in London, UK in conjunction with The London Clinic, one of the UK’s largest and most renowned independent hospitals. AXA is a leading provider of private medical insurance in the UK.

“Securing first payer coverage is the most significant milestone Aclarion has achieved to date,” said Brent Ness, CEO Aclarion. “This is a monumental step in launching widescale commercialization efforts at Aclarion. Nothing becomes standard of care in healthcare without reimbursement and we have now validated our strategy in one of the largest most sophisticated healthcare markets in the world.  We anticipate additional coverage decisions in the weeks to come and will be filling reimbursed markets with sales teams trained to drive adoption.  We are very committed to serving the needs of the patients covered by this AXA payer decision.  Evidence to date demonstrates that when Nociscan is incorporated into the treatment plan, outcomes significantly improve.  This evidence and our physician support is why other payers will be following AXA’s example.”

In the UK, self-pay and private medical insurance are estimated to represent nearly 70% of private hospital revenues, with private medical insurance becoming increasingly popular. AXA is one of the four leading private medical insurers in the UK with an estimated 30% of the private medical insurance market and an estimated 3 million insured customers.

The London Clinic and their expert spine physicians have adopted Nociscan as an important decision support tool to be used when diagnosing and treating their chronic low back pain patients. The AXA coverage decision expands access to Nociscan for insured patients for the first time.

About Aclarion, Inc.

Aclarion is a healthcare technology company that leverages Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (“MRS”), proprietary signal processing techniques, biomarkers, and augmented intelligence algorithms to optimize clinical treatments. The Company is first addressing the chronic low back pain market with Nociscan, the first, evidence-supported, SaaS platform to noninvasively help physicians distinguish between painful and nonpainful discs in the lumbar spine. Through a cloud connection, Nociscan receives magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) data from an MRI machine for each lumbar disc being evaluated. In the cloud, proprietary signal processing techniques extract and quantify chemical biomarkers demonstrated to be associated with disc pain. Biomarker data is entered into proprietary algorithms to indicate if a disc may be a source of pain. When used with other diagnostic tools, Nociscan provides critical insights into the location of a patient’s low back pain, giving physicians clarity to optimize treatment strategies.  For more information, please visit www.aclarion.com.
