Urgent: Take action to help protect your ESRD patients' access to care

Take action now. Visit http://www.DaVitaAdvocacy.com to urge your congressional leaders to call CMS today. It takes less than one minute to submit your comments. The recent proposal from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to cut reimbursement for dialysis by 9.4 percent puts hundreds of thousands of our kidney care patients at risk of losing access to the dialysis treatments they desperately need to survive. Allen R. Nissenson, MD, urges physicians and all members of the kidney care community to unite and advocate for our patients and their access to care. Now is the time to step forward and let your voice be heard. Contact Congress, let them know what is happening and ask them to intervene—for the good of our patients. You can make a difference and have your voice heard in fighting this rule.
