Item 8.01. Other Events.

On December 10, 2013, BG Medicine, Inc. (the "Company") issued a press release announcing that that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) have published the final determination of the 2014 Medicare national limitation amount for the Company's galectin-3 blood test (analyte-specific CPT® Code 82777) at the amount of a crosswalked test (analyte-specific CPT® Code 84244) whose 2014 national limitation amount is $30.01. This national limitation amount will replace the galectin-3 blood test's national limitation amount of $17.80 that was effective in 2013.

This final determination by CMS comes in response to the Company's request for reconsideration of the 2013 CMS determination and will apply effective January 1, 2014. The 2014 national limitation amount applies across the U.S. except in Ohio and West Virginia where rates of $23.99 and $26.40, respectively, will apply. In addition, the 2014 national limitation amount is subject to a 2% sequestration applicable to Medicare services if the current sequestration is extended beyond January 15, 2014.

A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated by reference into this Item 8.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K.
