ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the claim of Robert Foreman, president of the Kidney Care Council (KCC), that the council supports the findings of CMS that it is the time for a modernized payment system for dialysis services. Foreman says the dialysis payment system has suffered from a lack of an annual updating mechanism. He stresses that the CMS report recognizes the under-funding of the composite payment rate. Based on the article, the success of the revised payment mechanism will depend on the establishment of an appropriate rate.
