As of April 2016, 468,000 Americans are on dialysis1 with a growing economic impact across the board; from government programs to providers to individual patients. It is imperative for independent dialysis facilities to have their voices heard as quality reporting, care coordination and streamlined Medicare cost reporting continue to evolve.
We celebrate the clinical background and congressional experience that Congressman Price will bring to HHS and look forward to working with him to advocate progress for the independent, regional and community-based dialysis providers.
NRAA is a voluntary organization representing dialysis providers throughout the United States. Since 1973, the diverse membership is primarily comprised of small dialysis organizations and medium-sized dialysis organizations, as well as for-profit and non-profit providers serving patients in urban, rural and suburban areas in both freestanding and hospital-based facilities. NRAA is the leading resource and voice for the independent and community-based dialysis providers. For more information, visit www.nraa.org
