Analysis of the ESRD PPS Payment Model

CMS contracted with a data contractor to conduct research and analysis to refine the case-mix adjustment model. Below, we will post information about this project as it progresses.

Data Collection

A Technical Expert Panel (TEP) was held on December 6, 2018 to discuss options for improving data collection for refining the ESRD PPS case-mix adjustment model. This TEP represented the first step in acquiring stakeholder and expert input to inform these refinements. The slides used during this TEP, as well as a report that summarizes the discussion and recommendations of the Technical Expert Panel, may be found below:
