Despite this research and the policy change in Ontario, much remains unknown about potential policies for the reimbursement of BGTS both in Ontario and in other Canadian provinces.
We conducted two cross-sectional time-series analyses among adults who received a publicly-funded prescription for BGTS between January 1, 2004 and December 31, 2012--one among those aged 18 years or older in British Columbia (BC) and the other among those aged 65 or older in Ontario.
Our main outcomes were the number of BGTS claims and test strips dispensed (overall and per patient, daily) and their associated costs (separated into dispensing costs and product costs; overall, and per patient, daily) for each of the four treatment groups.
The aim of this project is to promote market based adoption of Biomass Gasification Technology (BGT
) for power generation and thermal applications, said Mohammad Alamgir Chaudhry, Chief Executive Officer SMEDA, in a statement issued here Wednesday.
