Kidney Care Partners expresses disappointment with proposed dialysis payment increase
July 7, 2023
Kidney Care Partners, a coalition of 30 organizations involved in kidney care, said it was “extremely concerned” about a proposal by CMS to increase the Medicare bundled payment rate by 1.6% next year, according to a press release.
The proposed additional payment, about half of the increase that CMS agreed to pay dialysis providers in 2023, “fails to heed calls from the kidney care community for meaningful relief to address the ongoing workforce crisis,” Kidney Care Partners (KCP) said in the release.
