Conditions for Coverage and Participation
The Conditions for Coverage that Medicare-funded dialysis facilities operate by, and the Conditions of Participation that Medicare-funded transplant centers operate by, were modified in 2007-2008. Adherence to these Conditions are monitored by Survey & Certification personnel from state Health Departments.
The operating rules used by state surveyors to monitor dialysis facilities, including the most current version of the Measurement Assessment Tool or "MAT," can be found at http://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Provider-Enrollment-and-Certification/GuidanceforLawsAndRegulations/Dialysis.html .
