A synopsis is given between the relationship of the number of end stage renal disease (ESRD) patients to the total Medicare
population and their associated expenditures. The aging trend within the ESRD population is examined in terms of enrollment
statistics and incidence (new cases) counts. Also, longitudinal trends in expenditures, program enrollment, and incidence
of ESRD are included. Findings indicate that the ESRD population is growing at a faster rate than Medicare in general. Further,
within ESRD, the beneficiary population is aging.
