Medicaid

Nearly half of all end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients rely on Medicaid coverage. While most of these patients are using this coverage as supplementary insurance to Medicare, there are some patients who do not qualify for Medicare. In these instances patients may need to rely on Medicaid only to cover their dialysis treatments. Additionally, some patients rely on Medicaid coverage during the 90 day period before Medicare can take effect. This coverage is critical for many ESRD patients across the nation. DPC’s mission is to improve dialysis patient quality of life, and that means advocating for adequate funding to ensure quality care. As a result, DPC is an active force when Medicaid funding is threatened at the state level.
