  • Achieved significant reimbursement progress.
    • Cigna, which provides commercial health coverage to about 17 million members in 13 states, has Medicare Advantage plans in 16 states, and participates in the Health Insurance Marketplace© online exchange, announced positive coverage applicable to Deep TMS for the treatment of OCD.
    • Positive coverage determination applicable to Deep TMS for OCD issued by Blue Cross Blue Shield Licensee covering over 2.6 million people in the Pacific Northwest.
    • Final and draft Local Coverage Determinations, respectively, were issued by CGS and NGS, two Medicare Administrative Contractors collectively representing 14.5 million covered lives, reducing the number of previous medication failures required to qualify for TMS treatment for major depressive disorder (MDD) from four to two.
    • Received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the Company’s Deep TMS™ H7 Coil for its use in treating adults suffering from depression including those with comorbid anxiety symptoms commonly known as anxious depression.
    • Announced a collaboration with NOCD, an organization that facilitates access to online therapy for people with OCD through its innovative telehealth platform, to raise awareness about OCD treatments among patients, caregivers, and clinicians.
    • Appointed Colleen A. Hanlon, Ph.D., as Vice President of Medical Affairs, with responsibility for the integration of medical and scientific intelligence to inform TMS providers on state-of-the-art developments in the field, guide business decisions, and deliver a transformative approach to patient safety and patient engagement. Formerly a professor at Wake Forest University School of Medicine and a member of the Wake Forest Center for Addiction Research, Dr. Hanlon brings nearly 20 years of experience in the field of brain imaging and brain stimulation research.

“While the current macroeconomic environment continues to present challenges to both our smaller customers and patients, we remain vigilant in controlling expenses,” stated Christopher von Jako, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of BrainsWay. “We are confident that we have the right plan in place for growth. One of our key growth initiatives is the planned strengthening of our salesforce. As we target larger, enterprise customers that are somewhat more insulated from economic fluctuations, we are focused on ensuring that when the sales team is appropriately built out, it is comprised of experienced professionals who can effectively communicate our differentiation and the significant return on investment that can be generated with Deep TMS.”

“Importantly, we are fortified with a strong balance sheet and believe that there are several tailwinds in our business. We continue to achieve sustainable success internationally, make further progress with reimbursement, execute on key clinical and regulatory milestones, and increase market awareness for Deep TMS. In addition, we believe that we have multiple growth catalysts ahead of us and favorable industry trends should present a highly compelling long-term outlook for our business,” concluded Dr. von Jako.
