Nyxoah Advances Patient Access Strategy through Partnership with the American Association of Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery Foundation

First medical device company to become a corporate champion at the ENTerprise Circle level

Mont-Saint-Guibert, Belgium – March 25, 2024, 7:05am CET / 2:05am ET – Nyxoah SA (Euronext Brussels/Nasdaq: NYXH) (“Nyxoah” or the “Company”), a medical technology company focused on the development and commercialization of innovative solutions to treat Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), today announced that the Company has signed a strategic partnership to become a Corporate Champion at the ENTerprise Circle level with the American Association of Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery Foundation (AAO-HNSF). Nyxoah is the first medical device company to partner with the AAO-HNSF at this level.

The AAO-HNSF is committed to identifying and combating harmful coverage policies that threaten access to quality otolaryngology-head and neck services. The Academy’s Advocacy team, in collaboration with its dedicated members and strategic industry partners like Nyxoah, actively engage with payers to achieve this goal.

The ENTerprise Circle is the top-tier partnership experience and the collaboration will focus on improving patient access to new breakthrough treatments for OSA by:

  • Navigating the CMS and Private Payers prior authorization requirements pathway
  • Preparing for interaction with the FDA and AMA CPT to expand patient access to appropriate care
  • Advocating for reducing the hurdles to new, bilateral hypoglossal nerve stimulation (HGNS) therapy with clinical guidelines to be used by CMS and commercial insurance payers

“We are thrilled to partner with Nyxoah, the maker of Genio,” said Dr James Denneny III, Executive Vice President & CEO, AAO-HNSF. “With the rapid growth of HGNS, ENTs are playing an increasingly important role in treating OSA. Genio represents the next generation of HGNS technology and the AAO-HNSF looks forward to working closely with Nyxoah to ensure all patients in the U.S. have access to the system.”

“We are honored to be the first medical device company to partner with the AAO-HNSF as a Corporate Champion at the ENTerprise Circle level,” commented Olivier Taelman, Nyxoah’s Chief Executive Officer. “Nyxoah and the AAO-HNSF share the common goal of putting patients first and making sure they have access to HGNS therapy. We look forward to working closely with the AAO-HNSF as we prepare for our U.S. launch.”
