The Commission on Kidney Disease, created by
Chapter 492, Acts of 1971, establishes a program of
State assistance for afflicted persons.

The Commission consists of twelve members
appointed by the Governor for terms of four years.
Six of the members are appointed at the discretion 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 Maryland Health Plan-
ning and Development Agency, the medical facul-
ties of the University of Maryland and The Johns
Hopkins University, and the Medical and
Chirurgical Faculty of Maryland. Of the members
appointed at the Governor's discretion, four must be
lay members to the field of medicine while two repre-
sent the medical insurance industry. No member
may serve more than two consecutive four-year
terms. The Commission selects its own officers and
appoints its executive director.

The Commission aids in the gathering and dis-
semination of information on the treatment of
chronic renal disease in the State. It also sets physi-
cal and medical standards for the operation of dialy-
sis 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 kidney disease and its treatment
and prevention for the public and providers of health
services. Patients accepted into the treatment phase
of the program will be eligible for State medical as-
sistance. The Commission may utilize existing
programs and groups for its informational purposes,
whether or not such programs and groups are gov-
ernmental. The Commission is to evaluate the entire
kidney disease program annually and report such
evaluation to the Governor (Code 1957, Art. 43,
sees. 781-790).
