5 things to know about CMS' new ACO dialysis model
from Becker's Hospital Review
From Oct. 13:
CMS is launching a new accountable care organization model to improve care coordination for patients with kidney failure and control costs for end-stage renal disease treatments. The 1.1 percent of Medicare beneficiaries with ESRD accounted for 5.6 percent of Medicare spending in 2012, according to CMS. This is because ESRD requires life-sustaining dialysis treatments several times per week and ESRD patients often suffer from other chronic conditions.
