Camino Renal Care is partnering with Medicare in the Kidney Care Choices Model.


Kidney Care Choices educates patients about kidney disease and manages care by providing resources.


Kidney Care Choices can support the transition onto dialysis and helps throughout the transplant process.


Your provider choices aren’t limited and your Medicare benefits do not change.

Our Mission: Your Care

Working Together With Medicare

Camino Renal Care brings together the talents of Balboa Nephrology Medical Group, Fresenius Kidney Care, Sharp Memorial Hospital Kidney and Pancreas Transplant Center and LightBridge Medical Associates to manage and improve care for our Medicare beneficiaries.

Through this innovative Medicare program these providers will collaborate to delay the on-set of dialysis for Chronic Kidney Disease beneficiaries, increase the number of beneficiaries dialyzing at home and increase kidney transplants.

Participating beneficiaries have access to a variety of educational and care resources to help them on their kidney care journey, along with patient to patient mentoring services provided by ReMend.



Experience the peace of mind that comes with having an entire team of healthcare professionals there for you any time.
