Changing payments for home therapies

Unread post by majestik » Sun Jul 14, 2019 1:08 am

This CMS rule was heavily lobbied by the industry and will definitely change a few things about home based dialysis, including home hemodialysis. It will should become easier to get stuff like iron infusion and so fort without a trip to the clinic. We have to wait and see how it is implemented.

Another interesting win for the industry is payment by type of patient. I wonder how that will affect the "protocol" based treatment modality that is currently practiced by dialysis clinics across the country. Perhaps this will incentivized them to move to more patient focused approach? I doubt it.
