Supporters vow to continue work on Kentucky dialysis reimbursements
Louisville Courier-Journal, April 7, 2008
Although a bill setting minimum insurance reimbursements for Kentucky kidney dialysis centers that aren't in an insurer's network failed to pass, supporters are promising to not let it die. The measure was proposed by dialysis companies because health insurers have reduced the amounts they pay to centers that haven't signed a contract to join a carrier's network. Insurers said many centers were avoiding price negotiations by remaining outside networks and as a result were getting paid up to twice as much as in-network centers.
