DPC continues its advocacy in support of the Dialysis PATIENTS Demonstration Act (H.R. 4143/S. 2065), recently reaching out to members of both the House of Representatives and Senate.
In our letters to Congress, we highlighted a number of important healthcare improvements for dialysis patients that are tied to the PATIENTS Act, including better care coordination, additional patient support and improved quality standards among clinics.
DPC is joined by a number of organizations that agree on the potential benefits to patients in The Dialysis PATIENTS Act and have pledged their support.
About The Dialysis PATIENTS Demonstration Act
The PATIENTS Act puts dialysis patients first by providing additional support that can help break down barriers to care that patients on dialysis face. The teams of nephrologists, nurses, social workers, dialysis providers, and others empowered by the PATIENTS Act would be able to better coordinate a patient’s care without limiting patient choice or infringing on the patient-physician relationship.
