Date:6/24/2009

NEWARK, Calif., June 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Novasys Medical, Inc., a developer of innovative therapies in women's health, announced today that as of July 1, 2009, First Coast Service Options, Inc. ("First Coast"), a large regional Medicare carrier serving over 3 million beneficiaries in Florida, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, has removed the non-surgical Renessa(R) treatment for women with stress urinary incontinence (SUI) from its noncovered services list and will be looking at claims for the Renessa procedure on an individual case by case basis.

On its Web site, First Coast states, "in order to provide an option for those physicians who are appropriately trained in treating women with stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and who are appropriately trained in performing the Renessa procedure, we will be removing Renessa from our noncovered LCD and we will be looking at claims for the Renessa procedure on an individual case by case basis." First Coast goes on to state that it "expects that providers submitting claims for Renessa are providing the services within the FDA approved guidelines and in accordance with the indications supported by peer-reviewed literature which limits its use to moderate to severe stress urinary incontinence (SUI) in females." http://medicare.fcso.com/Coverage_News/151387.asp

"We are very pleased with First Coast's decision," said Debra Reisenthel, Novasys Medical President and Chief Executive Officer, "as it enables access to this safe and effective treatment option for Medicare beneficiaries in Florida with moderate to severe SUI." First Coast joins Noridian Medicare, a large regional carrier administering benefits in nine states, in providing reimbursement for the Renessa procedure. Other private insurers, including AvMed and HealthFirst in Florida and Aetna US Healthcare nationwide, also cover this safe and effective
