Educational Materials for New ESRD Patients

Every new end stage renal disease (ESRD) patient receives a mailing from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) with materials to help them understand and manage their plan of care. The New ESRD Patient Orientation Packet (NEPOP) is distributed through a collaborative effort among CMS, the Networks, and the ESRD National Coordinating Center (NCC).

The NEPOP materials are valuable resources for people living with ESRD. To learn more about NEPOP, please visit the ESRD NCC website at
