Closing the Gap on Dialysis Care

By Daniel Foster23 Apr 2024

Lee-Anne Williams, from Morrero, LA, had to go on dialysis while in college.1 The restrictions and physical toll of dialysis are a heavy blow to any young person, but at least Ms. William’s age allowed her to remain on her mother’s insurance. That is, until she turned 26. At that point, she fell into the gap between parental insurance and medicare.

Dialysis is expensive. Incredibly expensive. Keeping a loved one alive with ESRD has financially ruined more than a few American families.

Enter HR 6860.

It’s a new bill, but it’s not so much a new patient-care offensive as it is a counterattack. A 2022 Supreme Court ruling created wiggle-room for group health care that can be used to force patients out of their private coverage and onto medicare in a way that can create an expensive (and for those who need dialysis or a transplant to live—possibly even lethal) care gap. The original “coordination of benefits” period was designed to cover this gap, allowing patients to choose either their private insurance or medicare for up to 30 months.

HR 6860 is designed for Ms. Williams and the countless Americans like her, reinstating and protecting the continuity of care that they so desperately need. Why are we at Transonic blogging about this? Because we understand the delicacy of ESRD care better than most. We spent years designing and testing a device to help protect ESRD patients from a different angle.

Awareness is knowledge, and knowledge is power.

As always, thanks for reading.
