*CMS 18-Month Rule Waiver

     The 18-month rule for dialysis technicians, states that all chronic care dialysis technicians must become certified within 18-months of

     being hired, is part of the CMS’s End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Conditions for Coverage regulations/requirements. According to the public

     health emergency (PHE) for COVID-19, as declared by the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) under section 319 of the Public Health

     Service Act (42 U.S.C. §247d): 

*ESRD Conditions for Coverage Waiver Renewal

     Last renewed on 04/7/2022

     Next Evaluation on  07/6/2022

    

     The decision to renew the waiver is reevaluated every 90 days.  Be advised that there is currently no provision to grant additional time past the     

     health emergency, and dialysis facilities are expected to be in compliance when the health emergency is lifted.
