CMS revised the CR to rescind the requirement for reporting time on dialysis machine by removing the verbiage in the background and policy sections of the CR. CMS revised the article to rescind this requirement as shown in red print on pages 2 and 5 of the article. Also, CMS revised the CR release date, transmittal number, and the web address of the CR. All other information remains the same.
