Change in Payment Practices for Acute Kidney Injury Patients

ANNA is participating with several other kidney community groups in talking with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) about recent changes in Medicare payment practices specific to outpatient treatment of acute kidney injury patients. "Talking points" have been developed to inform our members of these changes and of actions to take if these changes in practice will impact the delivery of care to patients with acute kidney injury who require hemodialysis after discharge from the hospital.
