Medicare & End Stage Renal Disease: Benefits, Options, and Transitions Rules

Event Description: 

Approximately 1% of all Medicare enrollees qualify for Medicare solely because they have End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD). ESRD Medicare is a separate benefit from age- and disability-related Medicare, and individuals with ESRD Medicare have specific rules about coverage and coordination of benefits.  

This webinar will discuss:

  • When ESRD patients can enroll in Medicare;
  • How other types of insurance coverage work with ESRD Medicare;
  • Coverage of immunosuppressant drugs after a kidney transplant; and
  • How the Health Insurance Marketplace works for ESRD patients.

Nora Moran, Education Associate with the Medicare Rights Center will present. Nora assists with content development and trainings for people with Medicare, their caregivers, advocates, and health care professionals at the Medicare Rights Center.
