NEWARK, Calif., Feb. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Novasys Medical, Inc., a developer of innovative therapies in women's health, announced today that Aetna, one of the nation's leading health insurers with over 17 million members, is now covering the non-surgical Renessa treatment for stress urinary incontinence (SUI) in non-pregnant women who are either not able or not willing to undergo surgery for their condition.

According to Aetna's updated policy posted on its website, the insurer now "considers transurethral radiofrequency therapy (Renessa procedure) medically necessary for the treatment of stress urinary incontinence" in these women. The policy goes on to state that the coverage decision was based on the published clinical evidence, as well as on a recent positive assessment by the California Technology Assessment Forum (CTAF), the technology review arm of Blue Shield of California and one of the premier medical technology assessment groups in the country. The CTAF assessment determined that Renessa meets all five of its criteria for "safety, effectiveness and improvement in health outcomes" in appropriately selected patients.
