Letter from Kidney Care Partners to CMMI Regarding Kidney Care Choice Models

Kidney Care Partners (KCP) convey their appreciation to the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) for its continued support and refinement of the kidney disease models, particularly the ESRD Treatment Choices (ETC) Model and the Kidney Care Choices (KCC) Models. KCP remains committed to partnering with the federal government to support innovative payment systems to address shortcomings of the current ESRD Prospective Payment System. As CMMI prepares to release the guidance and contracts for KCC participants, KCP recommends some modifications that align with recent changes CMMI has made to the ACO REACH Model to promote health equity and provide patients in underserved communities with access to the benefits of these models.
