Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Releases Medicare End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Payment Rule
On Monday, July 1, 2013, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released a proposed rule implementing payment and other policy changes to the Medicare End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Prospective Payment System (PPS). The proposed rule seeks to implement the ESRD payment reductions provided under the American Taxpayer Relief Act (ATRA) enacted earlier this year. (More information on the ATRA is available here.)
In addition, CMS also proposes changes to the ESRD Quality Incentive Program (QIP). A CMS fact sheet highlighting the proposed changes to the QIP is available here.
