A new bill called the Jack Reynolds Memory Medigap Expansion Act could help. It would extend Medigap coverage to dialysis patients under age 65, who wouldn’t otherwise qualify for it. By passing this bill, Congress can help address some of the biggest coverage concerns I’ve seen among patients.
Being on dialysis comes with a lot of obstacles, from lifestyle changes to simply coordinating care among all the different providers patients see. Being able to access and afford coverage shouldn’t be one of those hurdles, which is why I hope Rep. Lisa Blunt Rochester and Sens. Tom Carper and Chris Coons, all D-Del., help pass this important bill.
