The Patient's Voice

Welcome to DPC's blog where you have the ability to share your thoughts and interact with others from the kidney community and beyond. It is a place of genuine connection as well as advocacy and support. Your voice and your stories are more powerful than any statistic or study.

As I highlighted last fall, DPC has been busy working with other kidney community organizations and the federal government on a new and improved way to provide care to dialysis patients. As part of recent health care reform efforts, Medicare has been developing news ways to coordinate care for various patient groups and they just came out with their dialysis specific program!

Across the country, thousands of patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) face the agonizing choice of paying for necessities such as rent and food, or paying the insurance premiums that enable them to get dialysis and other critical care. Fortunately, ESRD patients have options. Thanks to federal law, they can enroll in Medicare at any age. Or, if they would rather keep a private insurance plan, they can apply for financial help from charities such as the American Kidney Fund.
