"This action will also dramatically improve prevention and treatment for this life-threatening illness while making life better and longer for millions of Americans". In our support for greater access to in home dialysis, it is important to maintain funding for a wide array of safe, affordable, and high-quality patient options for kidney care as well.

The National Institutes of Health estimates chronic kidney disease affects roughly 14 percent of the USA population.
