CMS Releases Rules of Significance to Renal Community, Solicits Comments

On February 4, 2005, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released three proposed rules, which will have a significant impact on the renal community, in the Federal Register. CMS is soliciting comments to these rules, and ANNA has assembled a task force to evaluate them and prepare a formal response from the Association. ANNA members and all renal health care providers are encouraged to review the rules themselves and submit their individual concerns and insights to CMS.

To access the full text of these rules (as published in the Federal Register), click on the bulleted titles above. Or go to http://www.cms.hhs.gov/cop/ to access the Conditions of Participation / Conditions for Coverage page on the CMS Web site.
