We're making a difference

Kidney care is complex, and current treatment isn't optimal — resulting in high costs and poor health outcomes.1,2,3 That’s why it’s time to disrupt and reshape how kidney disease is managed.

CVS Kidney CareTM Health Services

Using predictive, advanced analytics, we provide early identification, health care professional outreach, and health and treatment education. This supports people with chronic kidney disease and those at high risk — before they may require dialysis.

CVS Kidney CareTM Home Dialysis

We offer a “home first” approach to dialysis. We’ll work closely with people and their doctors to provide and coordinate home dialysis and offer ongoing education and support. In addition, in-center dialysis will remain an option as part of our offering.

There is hope. A system that pays for kidney health, rather than kidney sickness, would produce much better outcomes, often at a lower cost, for millions of Americans.4
