California: Oppose AB 290!

The California Senate passed AB 290.  Help us stop this dangerous bill!

Dialysis patients are vulnerable, requiring treatment three times a week to live.  California Assembly Bill 290 (AB 290) eliminates a patient’s choice to use third-party financial assistance from charities like the American Kidney Fund (AKF), an independent, non-profit charitable organization which helps pay health insurance premiums for dialysis patients enrolled in Medicare supplemental and commercial health insurance plans. This would force some dialysis patients onto government insurance prematurely, threatening not only those patients who receive financial help to maintain their insurance, but jeopardizing access to care for all dialysis patients in California.
