The ESRD PPS provides a single payment to ESRD facilities that will cover all of the resources used in providing outpatient dialysis treatment, including supplies and equipment used to administer dialysis (in the ESRD facility or at a patient’s home), drugs, biologicals, laboratory tests, training, and support services.

Form CMS-265-11 must be completed by all independent end stage renal dialysis (ESRD) facilities that are not hospital-based for cost reporting periods ending on or after January 1, 2011.   Submit the form to your fiscal intermediary (FI)/Medicare administrative contractor (MAC) (hereafter referred to as contractor) no later than the last day of the fifth month following the close of your cost reporting year.
