Advancing Kidney Health in America

Ohio Kidney & Hypertension Center (OKHC) and providers will be in a partnership with the Medicare Innovation Center in the Kidney Care Choices Model (KCC) to improve care for Medicare Beneficiaries with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) stages 4 and 5 and End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD). The practice will be participating in the implementation period of the Kidney Care First model from 10/15/20 – 3/31/21.


The overall goals of this model include:


  • Later and better starts on dialysis for beneficiaries with CKD

  • Better coordination of care for patients with CKD and ESRD to reduce total cost of care

  • Improved access to and quality of person-centered treatment options

  • Increased access to kidney transplants
