This state offers Medigap insurance to dialysis patients under 65.
Medicare, a federal program, pays for dialysis for over 80% of dialysis treatments. However, many issues concerning dialysis patients are actually handled at the state level.

A financial assistance program exists for dialysis patients, but current kidney patients in stages 1-4 of chronic kidney disease are not eligible. A maximum award of $150 is available per patient. Income is not a factor for eligibility in this program. The patient must be on dialysis, a state resident and seek aid through their social worker.
