H.R.5659 Would Open Medicare Advantage to End-Stage Renal Patients

Dialysis Patient Citizens (DPC) hailed the introduction of H.R. 5659 as the latest milestone toward opening Medicare Advantage enrollment to end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients. Stephen Anderson, a patient advocate from Indianapolis said, “As a dialysis patient of five years, I am fortunate to have secondary insurance to cover what Medicare does not. However, I know many patients in my facility don’t have that luxury. Providing dialysis patients access to Medicare Advantage will greatly help to reduce our out-of-pocket costs while improving our health with care coordination measures,” said. A study comparing outcomes of dialysis patients grandfathered into Medicare Advantage plans found that they have lower mortality rates than id their peers in fee-for-service plans.
