Clearing up Confusion about the Affordable Care Act
More than three years after passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), there is still a great deal of confusion surrounding the legislation and what changes it will make to our health care system. To help DPC members and the greater public better understand this important issue, DPC recently put together a webinar that focuses on the Affordable Care Act and what it means for the kidney community.
Presented by Jessica Nagro, Director of Public Affairs, the webinar goes over the major components of the ACA, along with how the changes might affect those with chronic kidney disease, those on dialysis and those with a kidney transplant. You can view and listen to the presentation here. (Jessica does a great job explaining the ACA as it applies to dialysis patients!)
You can find additional resources on the ACA and health reform in our latest blog post on the Patient’s Voice and feel free to contact DPC at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-8 66-877-4242 with additional questions.
I encourage you to join DPC (free) as it is the best resource and advocate for dialysis patients. Here is a link to the application form and the online sign up.
