CMN Needed

I accidently posted this to the patient thread.

Is a CMN or a new application needed to start a home hemo program if you already have in-center dialysis and a peritoneal dialysis program?

Hi Unregistered,

I deleted the accidental post to the patient message board. Which state are you in? At a recent talk at the preconference workshop at the Annual Dialysis Conference, Michelle Carver spoke about Certificates of Need, and I think she said that about 11 states required them, but don’t recall which ones those were. You might contact her to see if she can guide you. She’s at the Dialysis Center of Lincoln, in Lincoln, Nebraska. Dialysis Facility Compare lists the phone number for that clinic as (402)489-5339.
