It’s Time to TAKE ACTION!

One of NKF’s legislative priorities is S. 1454 / H.R. 2969, to help kidney transplant recipients obtain the life-saving immunosuppressive medications that are necessary to maintain the viability of their new kidney. This legislation would extend Medicare coverage of immunosuppressive drugs for transplant recipients who are under age 65 and who under current law lose their Medicare 36 months after receiving their transplant. H.R. 2969 has nearly 100 cosponsors and S. 1454 has 15 cosponsors! If you have not previously done so, please contact your congressional delegation using our e-advocacy system to request their support (or to thank them if they are already a cosponsor). Thank you.



This group of advocates already took action on World Kidney Day 2012, when they met with their Senators and Representatives in Washington, DC to request support for the Immunosuppressive Drug Coverage bill.  Won’t you join them in the fight to get this legislation passed?  TAKE ACTION now!
