Contact Congress: PATIENTS Act

ASTS is concerned the Dialysis PATIENTS Demonstration Act (H.R. 4143 and S. 2065) has the potential to impact Medicare beneficiaries’ continued access to kidney transplantation. Your help in opposing this bill is critical given a concerted effort by for-profit dialysis companies and others to move it forward this session.

The legislation is jointly opposed by two of the leading international transplant organizations, a prominent kidney patient advocacy group, and the organ procurement association, among others. The letter from ASTS, AST, AAKP, and AOPO is available here (House and Senate versions).
