CONGRESS: ACT NOW TO PREVENT A DRASTIC SPIKE IN MEDICARE PART B COSTS TO ESRD PATIENTS
This petition made change with 893 supporters!
Unless Congress acts, the Medicare Part B premium and deductible are expected to increase significantly for many dialysis patients in 2016. Specifically, any ESRD patient whose Medicare premium is not deducted from their Social Security check could see their premium increase by 50 percent to $159. This would affect patients who are under 65 and are not receiving disability benefits. Patients who are currently on Social Security would not be affected; however, anyone under 65 who receives a transplant and leaves
Medicare would see a much higher premium when they turn 65. Also, new ESRD patients and retirees would pay the higher premium.
We are requesting that the Congress Act now, to prevent increases in the 2016 Medicare Part B premium and deductible. Many older adults and people with disabilities are living on low- and fixed incomes, and simply cannot afford additional health care costs.
