Posted by l0lag0lag0b3 @l0lag0lag0b3, Jun 28, 2022

Kidney Transplant Recipients, Medicare will pick up the tab of immunosuppressants after completion of 3 years too. ( not sure if it restricted for 65 and above)

"H.R. 5534 (116th): Comprehensive Immunosuppressive Drug Coverage for Kidney Transplant Patients Act of 2020"

This suppose to be active from year 2023, Have you heard or have an update on this
Thanks Sincerely.
