ESRD facilities are responsible for all reasonable and necessary expenses incurred in the initial installation of home dialysis equipment, but not those expenses attributable to items that are basically for the purpose of improving the patient's home, e.g., plumbing or electrical work beyond that necessary to tie in with existing power or water lines.

The delivery and installation of renal dialysis equipment, unlike that involved when a hospital bed is delivered and set up, requires testing and assurance of equipment performance. Therefore, if the supplier of home dialysis equipment customarily charges for delivery and service, and this is a common practice among other suppliers as well, this is payable.
