Kidney Care Partners Urges Greater Kidney Disease Education and Legislative Support During National Kidney Month
Date:3/10/2008

nt initiative that would provide dialysis facilities and treating physicians with quality-based payments funded through a portion of an annual cost of care update. Dialysis facilities are the only Medicare providers without an annual update to adjust for inflationary cost increases, and the quality initiative would establish a three-year update tied to achieving specific quality benchmarks. Adequate and stable reimbursement is critical to ensuring continued patient access to high quality care.

Kidney Care Partners thanks the Congressional sponsors and co-sponsors of the Kidney Care Quality and Education Act, and hopes to continue working with these supportive legislators to enact legislation that will improve kidney care and help reduce the impact of kidney disease in the U.S. The Senate version of the bill (S. 691), sponsored by Sen. Kent Conrad (D-ND), now has 26 bipartisan co-sponsors. The House version (H.R. 1193), sponsored by Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) and Rep. Dave Camp (R-MI), has 145 Democratic and Republican co-sponsors.

"We hope to share important kidney disease information with all Americans and gain bipartisan support from Congress for kidney disease education components as it considers any Medicare legislation this year," said Dr. Jones. "As we have seen all too often, many people do not know they have kidney disease until they are facing kidney failure - and with more supportive legislation in place, we will have the power to work together to reverse this course."
