CMS Requests Suggestions for Updates to Conditions for Coverage for ESRD Facilities
The Clinical Standards Group (CSG) in the CMS Center for Clinical Standards and Quality (CCSQ) is responsible for developing, updating and overseeing the CMS regulations on the Conditions for Coverage (CfCs) for ESRD facilities.  These particular regulations were last revised in 2008 (116-page pdf); therefore, CSG is asking the ESRD community to review the current Conditions for Coverage (CfCs) and provide suggestions for additions/changes/obsoletions that may be useful in a future update to the current regulations.

Please email ESRDCSG@cms.hhs.gov by April 1st with your suggestions for future updates to the CMS regulations on the Conditions for Coverage (CfCs) for ESRD facilities.
