Renal Dialysis Centers (RDC) Services
A Renal Dialysis Center (RDC) is a hospital unit which is approved by Medicare, Medicaid and third-party payers to furnish the full spectrum of diagnostic, therapeutic and rehabilitative services required for the care of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) dialysis patients (including inpatient dialysis furnished directly or indirectly under arrangement). A hospital does not need to provide renal transplantation to qualify as a renal dialysis center.
The dialysis service could include: inpatient dialysis, outpatient dialysis, self-dialysis and home dialysis. The service is provided by the facilities own staff or through individuals who are contracted to furnish such services for the facility, as stated in 42CFR 405.2102.
