Chronic kidney disease coverage in Mexico is regulated under constitutional mandate approved by the Congress in 2004 through the National Commission for Social Health Protection (CNPSS) it does so under the Popular Health Insurance (SP) following the rules of an universal health services catalog (CAUSES) based upon budget in a per capita basis or in more expensive clinical situations like dialysis and transplantation, through a specific fund for catastrophic expenses. SP operates through credited services by the Intergated Quality System SICalidad mainly represented by the already existing network of our public health system. Mexican public health policy to care for chronic renal disease will involve screening of high risk populations, definition of remnant kidney parenchyma function, deterioration factors, early and strict intervention regimes, early identification of the advanced chronic kidney insufficiency, training and optimal selection of the dialysis or transplantation procedures when required. Competirc is actively involved in the design of the clinical guidelines as well as the accreditation standards for establishments for dialysis and transplantation.
