Lisa Volk in Clinical & Quality

In 2017, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recognized a new modality of dialysis therapy, Nursing Home Hemodialysis. This service was previously allowed by CMS under Home Dialysis and approved by the New York State Department of Health (Department) on a limited basis under the State operating certificate service category of Home Hemodialysis Training and Support. CMS has yet to finalize guidance for federal requirements for the dialysis providers. See attached DAL for further information.
