Kidney doctors concerned by Medicare financing

USA Today, September 3, 2009
Doctors concerned about the care of chronic kidney failure patients hope to meet this month with the chief medical officer of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to explore how it can be improved. In June, a group of leading nephrologists voiced concerns in a letter to Barry Straube, the top CMS doctor, and White House health policy czar Nancy-Ann DeParle. The letter urged "substantial changes in the delivery and financing of care . . . to improve patient outcomes."
