Rather interesting development concerning Medicare benefit for certain kidney recipients. With link to UNOS for more information.

"Starting Jan. 1, 2023, a new Medicare benefit is available for certain kidney recipients to help cover the costs of immunosuppressive medications. This benefit is for transplant recipients who have Medicare because of End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), and who received a transplant more than 36 months ago. General enrollment for Medicare plans ended on Dec. 7, however eligible individuals enroll in this new benefit at any time."
