The impact of the coronavirus pandemic has made one thing clear: it’s time to guarantee Medicare coverage of immunosuppressive medications for kidney transplant patients! Millions of Americans have lost their jobs, which for many, also results in the loss of employer provided health insurance. Congress – don’t let COVID-19 stand in the way of kidney recipients and their anti-rejection medications. Take action to pass the Comprehensive Immunosuppressive Drug Coverage for Kidney Transplant Patients via any moving legislative vehicle before the end of this Congress!
Passing the Immuno Bill this year would…
- Protect kidney transplant patients and decrease their risk of organ rejection
- Result in significant savings to Medicare, according to the U.S. Congressional Budget Office
- #HonorTheGift of kidney donation
- Use smart policy to save lives and provide much needed relief to American families
