Modern Healthcare

In what is likely to be a relief to dialysis providers, the CMS decided to phase in the controversial payment cut to dialysis providers over a three- to four-year period. Moreover, overall payments for 2014 will remain the same, according to the final rule issued Friday. The American Taxpayer Relief Act calls for the rebasing of dialysis rates to better reflect decreased utilization of expensive anemia drugs that have been linked to safety concerns.
