network council


MARC maintains a Network Coordinating Council that meets the statutory requirements of Section 1881(c) of the Social Security Act.  The Council consists of representatives from Medicare-certified ESRD facilities and is respon­sible for providing advice and assistance to the Board of Directors regarding the general direction of the Network organization.  The Council provides the mechanism for information exchange between the Network and the facility membership.  Each of the Medicare-approved ESRD outpatient providers is offered the opportunity to appoint a representative and an alternate to serve on the Council and can make changes to their representation at any time.
