procedure estimates from the NSAS National Survey of Ambulatory Surgery 20 million procedures were performed outside of hospitals and represent the most attractive segment for PAION 29 million unique procedure claims for colonoscopy and endoscopy in 2013 Colonoscopy/endoscopy procedures updated with 2013 CPT, ICD9, HCPCS procedure code data from Symphony Health Solutions. 18 Colonoscopy Market in the U.S. is split into 2 main segments ~20 million GI Procedures per year outside of hospitals Providers using midazolam (65-70 %): Dominant in West, Midwest and South No anesthesiologist required Slower patient recovery to alert Less procedures due to slower throughput for clinician Lower cost for Insurers and CMS Problem: Less revenue for providers Providers using Propofol (30-35 %): Dominant in Northeast & Eastern U.S. Must use anesthesiologist Rapid patient recovery to alert More procedures for clinician as a result of faster throughput More revenue for providers Problem: Higher cost for insurers and CMS Each market has a different problem, Remimazolam offers solutions for both Midazolam users: Increased efficiency, throughput, and revenues for the provider and insurer Improved patient experience Propofol users: PAION assumes that anesthesiologists want to use Remimazolam instead of propofol Alternative sedation option allowing providers to maintain high throughput An alternative for patients with certain complicating risk factors 19 Midazolam = million patients in Conscious Sedation Remimazolam offers many potential advantages Both are: Similarities In the benzodiazepine family Administered intravenously Do/will not require anesthesiology assistance (anticipated) Remimazolam Advantages Mechanistic advantage Metabolism by tissue esterase Inactive metabolite Shorter half life Fast on Fast off Potential impact No re-sedation Earlier patient discharges Clinic efficiency Higher patient turnover/throughput (more procedures) Improved patient experience 20 Additional reasons to believe in Remimazolam Requires minimal behavioral changes for current midazolam users Low reimbursement uncertainty or formulary risks No competitive response/no counter detailing No new entries/competitors coming to market One product in Phase 1 development 21 U.S. Phase IIb data support business case vs. midazolam With an average reduction of 5 min/procedure and an average number of procedures of 10-20/day/doctor centres gain procedures/doctor per day if they switch from midazolam to Remimazolam Time to start procedure after initial dose Min Remimazolam - 5.0/3.0 mg 2.65 (1.42) Midazolam - 2.5/1.0 mg 4.80 (3.19) Time to be ready for discharge after last dose Min Remimazolam - 5.0/3.0 mg 11.3 (4.86) Midazolam - 2.5/1.0 mg 15.3 (8.13) 22 Current reimbursement levels make products very attractive that can allow for additional procedures Colonoscopy and anesthesia reimbursement level may vary significantly depending on commercial MCO * type. Reimbursements paid by a given commercial MCO may vary significantly, as payers look to negotiate rates and contract for provider services. Future Bundle Payer Type CPT Colonoscopy Reimbursement In-patient Out-patient CPT 0080/00740 Anesthesiology Reimbursement Medicare $466 $836 $158 Commercial HMO ** Commercial (Non-HMO) $326 - $373 $585 - $669 $110 - $126 $560 - $699 $1,003 - $1,254 $189 - $236 Sources: accessed 05/11/2015.
