Grant Guidelines

Every grant we award is based on:

  1. The merit of the educational program or independent research, as described in the submission
  2. Alignment with internal company policies. All grants are provided in compliance with the published codes that are standard industry practices (e.g. AdvaMed, MedTech, MTAA) and our internal policies.

No award is determined or influenced by the volume, or value of any business that could be potentially generated by the grant requester. The grant requester is not obligated to purchase, use, recommend, or arrange for the use of any product or service of Nevro.

To receive consideration, requests should be submitted at least 30 days prior to the start of the program. Submission of a grant request does not guarantee approval or support for the entire amount requested (or any portion thereof). All approved grant requests must be documented in a fully-executed, written agreement before any award is due and payable. For continuing education programs, payment will be made to the accredited body unless otherwise specified in writing.

Disclaimer

We receive many worthwhile requests for product donations. Unfortunately, we are unable to fund them all. It is important to note that past funding does not guarantee future approval. Requestors will receive an email notification of approval or denial after the Patient Assistance Review Committee has made its decisions.

The US Physician Payment Sunshine Act requires all medical device manufacturers, including Nevro, to report annually to the US government on payments and transfers of value made to US physicians and teaching hospitals. This includes charitable donations. Many countries have similar transparency laws.
