Expanding Medigap coverage for End-Stage Renal Disease patients of all ages is a critical step to eliminating financial barriers to care, especially when it comes to transplantation. Congresswomen Cynthia Axne (D-IA-03) and Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-WA-03) recently introduced the Jack Reynolds Memorial Medigap Expansion Act (H.R. 1676) in honor of DPC founding Board member and our longest-serving president Jack Reynolds. This important bill would guarantee access to Medigap coverage for patients under 65 who suffer from End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD).
There are already 19 bi-partisan co-sponsors who are working to ensure ESRD patients can obtain insurance coverage to pay for the 20% coinsurance not covered by Medicare. We are making progress, but DPC needs your help to keep the momentum going. Urge your U.S. Representative to support the bill today!
