of end quarter, because are is XX% your be You there it getting my can have process all talking experienced, getting the hired, good to lot reimbursement like a exiting to probably given with sense. us more your claims recent it how the a going sense to need going Maybe in forward, docs and a now spend it's more rep that give much how with its that start out Jeri seems us being and of reps and affects sounds both about lot more call, improvement are like getting the from sales business almost Lisa productivities on to higher of you time positive. base

us understand we XXXX? into heading think that help about So how

Lisa Earnhardt

had think those product mentioned we as particular to national Robbie payors definitely that and to snapshot and teams don't it that are and bodes as well as of a into access for from team any the getting on our know initiatives -- beyond. streamlining at the if comment benefits specific focus which both with SINUVA, premature XXXX. or continue We're we will next I so us of conviction growth That question productivity to you year the some I encouraged the in relates it's they do us to to that ability happened more help enable those combines well around certainly coverage, administrative reimbursement access, but -- to product certainly Yes. for drive the covering of probably believe point head majority our about provide two best parts let is clinical our more fashion. there's current streamlined in know discussing have of what on sales I of as technology the this and further sales in growth do overall

Robbie Marcus

versus specific, if PROPEL business, think the dealing SINUVA year's whole time the productivity of reimbursement, spent a was about productivity reps lot Yes, it just in improving more that's year's to I maybe -- last the little a like base seems this a get with maybe lot.

with want they productivity to code a you should that could of that spend miscellaneous to headwind significant assume have Street start about time now still less still going that likely? dealing XXXX as becomes a or to improve reimbursement it's of So most amount into the a we think reimbursement

Jeryl Hilleman

Robbie you're right. Yes,

time our the and that field sales having improve less team access the expanded is time definitely should track we've have to We productivity. goal and also questions the spends over reimbursement over team, product expanded time down could team sales that

range include focus though pointed really as grow is the launch XX% in most that Lisa since continuing would what for seen of PROPEL of a to we've the mentioned, really, of SINUVA. level business and Our higher growth than

really productivity. which very improve driving growth over we're course So into time for focused year will much of top-line going next

Robbie Marcus

submit yet any the product the that could Okay, Appreciate trials trial great. you And the have that? that just on date it to run pipeline, leave Balloon just lastly then confidence at one with here I'll and see Drug-Coated you you question. with

Lisa Earnhardt

small code around run clinical the in Yes, Drug-Coated Robbie, a the itself. of particular we Balloon pharmacokinetics

drug think just what I is very vast confidence in experience the our to sinuses. us gives delivering

all with into our we gives PROPEL done So combination done the ASCEND SINUVA work that work of we've of the animal lot with us testing invention we've head and a products the in as trial. confidence

Jeryl Hilleman

depend years not timelines this really for that's we're said will potential clarify, there to to and a be on is won't allow talked pivotal if when flexibility results to pivotal. just be we this a And Yes. sure there. three the Lisa going to to But the about two

Operator

comes Thank Lynch. Bank you. next Merrill And with the of America Hopkins question from Bob

Bob Hopkins

morning. Good

the from of Just wondering did? back reasons the I us that question, it way product go commentary you first are specific made what you perspective just maybe just out and understand if the for was to your could sort it's help J-Code why the played

Lisa Earnhardt

that the referenced and and that CMS the steroid Category a most not those were therefore Yes, preliminary decision CPT decision SINUVA sort for May the J-Code I was placement forth back necessary. Bob, that implants releasing put of code at the that X think they codes asserted on of we separate or time reflect appropriate that

you CMS knows this know this those at end well year. be As of as sunset point codes and at the will

would would just feedback our -- point lie we that's would be reapply January this of And no let then that and understanding effective. would codes be longer additional be and they of those really, so don't we from no decision preliminary that XXXX CMS longer but have as their that we

Jeryl Hilleman

which from on to clarify this insights have that at CMS available. any publically is don't point we Yes, just further

Bob Hopkins

to that $XX by in assume implied terms are as about next then either what base grow with on you should Is of has could growing of this look talk in but challenges And the then base appreciate again you then Thank range? that million and challenges XX% can $XX you context, XX% the or million somewhere that year that year? terms mentioning to double-digits next year, thereof. I the XX% the SINUVA anything really business still comfortable revenues maybe while changed the that we're just in presents of to that's you guys you're in next comfortable the we you business also means the you. sort just of lack that Like and topic

Lisa Earnhardt

handle second Yes, I'll Jeryl first. that would the part question of then refer the to back

Jeryl Hilleman

have when that we We got preliminary that parsed low-double-digits certainly at see do specific so in a just that we we only guidance. we continuing and overall, expect But the haven't to franchise. do view growth really PROPEL will detail XX% we'd expect and said to give grow

Lisa Earnhardt

Yes, about is present. headwinds reimbursement and product might but and then Coding about we of coding and what of J-Code think piece coverage we it this payments. a it. think earlier one And for just on you as asked the coverage

or that four payors always That stead our national the is publish formulary, that we've good previously along there for SINUVA. i.e. a really feel of can submissions positive their the coverage physician we to element to coverage those easier in to that with particular nauseam will claims, number will payors we've are something described put with last for resources it's and/or where the experience important we And this we've through use it's driving us at in said on but needing most in force believe an all J-Code. we And based we we ultimately think as surmised at I policy like and and we've point what get at for pay believe some we're to flex us most we weeks doing needed inefficiencies just unassigned make of their we had there. that is been we're sure always the six success our practices rates? in can advance It's and a either muscles. all think becoming very support we products consistent brute important as that in month part
