On November 9 RPA Board members Rebecca Schmidt, D.O. and Robert Fuld M.D., along with RPA staff, met with senior CMS staff to provide RPA's perspective on the recently released draft local coverage determinations (LCDs) on frequency of dialysis. Drs. Schmidt and Fuld highlighted the RPA's belief that some of the conditions necessitating the need for more frequent dialysis occur chronically rather than acutely, and that some patients simply cannot tolerate extra fluid and will often require a trip to the emergency room or hospital admission to urgently address their condition. Register for RPA's free webinar on November 20 to learn more about the LCDs.
