Medicare coverage post Transplant: can one re-enroll?
My daughter received a kidney transplant in November of 2019. She has been on disability, but recently was hired as a contract tracer. The job offers private insurance. If she signs up for the private insurance – for just the next 5 months before she enters grad school, can she "re-enroll" to get back on Medicare? She will still be in the 36 month period post transplant. We have been unable to figure this out and would love to hear about others' experiences.
We are also curious to find out if the newly passed law will allow transplant recipients who have already passed the 3 year mark post transplant to be once again covered under Medicare – or if the law will only apply for those who will still be in the 3 year period when the law takes effect, January 1, 2023. My daughter will hit three years in November of 2022….!?
