The CMS issued a proposed Medicare payment rule for end-stage renal disease facilities that would result in an overall payment increase of 3.1% in 2013 and would boost requirements of the ESRD Quality Incentive Program, according to a CMS news release.

The base payment rate is expected to rise 3.2%, but be reduced by a productivity adjustment of 0.7%, resulting in an increase of 2.5%.
