Hgb goal

Is the goal for Hgb set by CMS or by ones clinic? My Hgb has consistently run in the 12s, but now my nurse tells me the goal is 10-12 down from 13 according to CMS.

I’m afraid the goal is set by CMS. Here’s a thread about why… http://forums.homedialysis.org/showthread.php?t=1422&highlight=black+box
