#IVTEAM #Intravenous news: Medpagetoday report “Medicare payments to dialysis facilities will remain flat next year, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced late Friday, almost 4 months after threatening a 9.4% cut.

The agency, however, will increase by 50% what it pays providers to train patients to do dialysis at home, much to the delight of home dialysis advocates. CMS increased by $16.72 the reimbursement per training session, to $50.16. The news came in the announcement of CMS’ finalized 2014 end-stage renal disease prospective payment system.”
