In Wisconsin, End Stage Renal Disease facilities that are part of Medicare or Medicaid must be certified.
End stage renal disease dialysis certification is for facilities that provide:
- Outpatient maintenance dialysis services.
- Home dialysis training and support services.
- Both services.
Initial certification is for facilities that wish to get payments from Medicare and/or Medicaid programs. Payments are for treating patients two to three times a week. The treatment removes waste from the blood that the kidneys can't remove.
