The Commission consists of twelve members appointed by the Gov-
ernor for terms of four years. Initially, three members were appointed
for a term of one year, three for two years, three for three years, and
three for four years. Six of the members are appointed at the discre-
tion of the Governor. The remaining six members are appointed from
nominations from lists containing at least three names each submitted
by the Kidney Foundation of Maryland, the Regional Medical Programs
of Maryland, the Comprehensive Health Planning Agency, the medical
faculties of the University of Maryland and the Johns Hopkins Univer-
sity, and the Medical and Chirurgical Faculty of Maryland. Of the
members appointed at the Governor's discretion, four must be laymen
to the field of medicine while two represent the medical insurance in-
dustry. No member may serve more than two consecutive four-year
terms. The Commission selects its own officers and appoints the Execu-
tive Director.
The Commission aids in the gathering and dissemination of informa-
tion on the treatment of chronic renal disease in the State. It also sets
physical and medical standards for the operation of dialysis and renal
transplantation centers, and sets standards for the acceptance of a
patient into the treatment phase of the program. The Commission also
institutes and supervises educational programs on the subject of kid-
ney disease and its treatment and prevention for the public and pro-
viders of health services. Patients accepted into the treatment phase of
the program will be eligible for State medical assistance. The Com-
mission may utilize existing programs and groups for its informational
purposes, whether or not such programs and groups are governmental.
The Commission is to evaluate the entire kidney disease program
annually and report such evaluation to the Governor (Code 1957, 1971
