Our insurance premium assistance is what makes it possible for many dialysis patients to qualify for the transplant waiting list, go through the workup process, and have the transplant surgery. Without comprehensive insurance, these patients would not be able to have a transplant.

AKF continues to provide charitable premium assistance to HIPP grant recipients for the remainder of the insurance plan year after they receive a kidney transplant, giving them support as they recover from surgery and resume the lives they had before kidney failure. In 2018, our assitance enable transplants for more than 1,000 dialysis patients—5% of the nation's kidney transplants.
