President Trump, the new Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Tom Price and the Republican-majority led House and Senate intend to bring changes to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), Medicaid and Medicare in 2017. We will assess how these changes are likely to affect ESRD patients on dialysis and advocate for policies that provide patients with the best comprehensive and affordable coverage. ESRD patients deserve a health insurance plan that best suits their personal needs and provides them with the ability to make their own choices in health care.
In the coming months, as the Trump Administration’s plans for the Affordable Care Act and other health care services become clearer, we will call on you to contact your elected officials. The Trump Administration and Congress need to know the unique circumstances of ESRD patients and your voices as constituents will be especially important.
