New Patient Orientation Packet

New End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) patients receive an information packet in the mail from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) which is distributed by the ESRD Network Coordinating Center.  The mailing contains resources to help new dialysis and transplant patients manage their care and understand the benefits available to them.

The materials also are available on this website for download.  Most are available in Spanish as well as English.
