One of the co-sponsors of the Comprehensive Immunosuppressive Drug Coverage for Kidney Transplant Patients bill is looking for stories of patients who have been directly affected by Medicare’s 36 month cut off of coverage for immunosuppressant drugs.
If you are a kidney recipient:
Do you have a plan in place for how to pay for your meds once Medicare’s coverage ends? Have you already passed the 36 months covered by Medicare? Have you had to skip any meds due to being unable to pay for them?
If so, please email us with your story: email@example.com
It hasn’t effected me yet .But I have about 32 months left. I’m 48 so Medicare will cut out and I’m very worried about paying for medications. Not able to work yet, but it’s only been 4 months since transplant. Hopefully Congress will pass
the bill soon
