To remedy unethical practices that steered dialysis clients away from Medicaid and Medicare insurance coverage, social workers will now be required to counsel patients regarding all insurance coverage options. NASW recommends that dialysis facilities evaluate staffing and, if needed, increase the number of social work staff to adequately deliver psychosocial support services and administrative tasks to dialysis clients, as required by CMS.
