CMS Proposes a Bundle Increase to Increase Access to Home Dialysis
A new proposed CMS rule building on the Advancing American Kidney Health Initiative Executive Order would increase the bundled dialysis payment by $16.26. Per a CMS press release, the amount would expand a financial incentive to encourage innovation of new home equipment to reduce hospitalization and improve beneficiaries’ quality of life. A fact sheet about the rule can be found here.
