Lowell General Hospital's Methuen Dialysis Facility (the Hospital), operating in Methuen, Massachusetts, did not always comply with Medicare end-stage renal disease prospective payment system billing requirements for selected services and did not make quality information fully available to patients. These errors occurred primarily because the Hospital did not have adequate controls to comply with certain Medicare requirements for the selected services. The findings did not result in a material financial impact.
