End-Stage Renal Disease: CMS Should Improve Design and Strengthen Monitoring of Low-Volume Adjustment
James Cosgrove (au)
Medicare spent about $10.1 billion in 2011 on dialysis treatments and related items and services for about 365,000 beneficiaries with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Most individuals with ESRD are eligible for Medicare. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) implemented the low-volume payment adjustment (LVPA) to compensate dialysis facilities that provided a low volume of dialysis treatments for the higher costs they incurred. This report examined (1) the extent to which the LVPA targeted low-volume, high-cost facilities that appeared necessary for ensuring access to care; and (2) CMSäó»s implementation of the LVPA, including the extent to which CMS paid the 2011 LVPA to facilities eligible to receive it. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
