For dates of service prior to January 1, 2011, there are two methods of payment for home dialysis equipment and supplies: Method I and Method II.

Under Method I, benefits are paid by a Medicare FI on the basis of a prospective payment, the composite rate. (See Chapters 8 and 12. for more information on establishing the composite rate).

Under Method II, the DME MAC pays for supplies and services other than physician services. Physician services are paid at a monthly capitation rate by the local carrier. See Chapters 8 and 12 for more information on payment under Method II.

For dates of service on and after January 1, 2011, please refer to Section 30.8.3 for information on the elimination of Method II home dialysis.
