Fresenius Seamless
Care of Portland

an ESRD Seamless Care Organization

Fresenius Seamless Care of Portland, LLC

Certain dialysis facilities in the Portland, Oregon area have chosen to participate in Fresenius Seamless Care of Portland, an ESRD Seamless Care Organization (ESCO) in the Medicare Comprehensive ESRD Care model. See below for a listing of ESCO dialysis facilities in Portland, Oregon.

We’re Working to Improve Your Care

The goal of an ESCO is for dialysis facilities, nephrologists, and other health care providers to communicate and work together closely, so they can deliver high-quality care that meets the patient’s individual needs and preferences. ESCOs may be rewarded for providing their patients with higher quality, more coordinated care.

You Can Still Choose Any
Dialysis Facility, Doctor or Hospital

An ESCO Patient’s Medicare benefits do not change. An ESCO is not a Medicare Advantage plan, a Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) plan, or an insurance plan of any kind.

ESCO Patients still have the right to use any dialysis facility, provider or hospital that accepts Medicare, at any time. A doctor may continue to recommend that an ESCO Patient see particular doctors or providers for their specific health needs, but it is always the patient’s choice about which provider they use or dialysis facility or hospital they visit.

Questions or Concerns?

If you have questions or concerns, you can:

  • E-mail us at, call us at 1-844-209-9093, or bring it up next time you are in your provider’s office.
  • You can also call 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227) and tell the representative you are calling about ESCOs.
  • TTY users should call 1-877-486-2048.
