New CMS Living Donor Regs??
We have recently become aware of pending CMS regulations regarding relationships between centers where living donor organs are recovered and centers where the organs are transplanted. This was the subject of a conference call on October 28 that was widely attended. The essence of the new regs is that the transplanting center holds at least partial responsibility for standards at the recovery center. You can access the proposal here. AST is in the process of preparing a formal response; what should that response include?
