Supreme Court to Decide Medicare Dialysis Case
National Conference of State Legislatures [NCSL]Link to more items from this source
Nov. 19, 2021

"DaVita argues that treating dialysis benefits less favorably than other benefits violates the MSPA. Marietta Memorial Hospital Employee Health Benefit Plan argues it hasn't violated the [Medicare Secondary Payer Act (MSPA)] because it provides the same dialysis benefits to all plan participants and reimburses dialysis providers uniformly regardless of whether the patient has end-stage renal disease. The 6th Circuit agreed with DaVita that the health plan may have violated three provisions of the MSPA." [Marietta Memorial Hospital Employee Health Benefit Plan v. Davita, Inc., No. 19-4039 (6th Cir. Oct. 14, 2020; cert. pet. granted Nov. 5, 2021)]
