SB 1156 Prioritizes Insurance Industry
Profits Over the Health of Low-Income Dialysis Patients
Big health insurance companies are sponsoring Senate Bill 1156, legislation that would allow insurance companies to deny coverage and slash payments for the care of low-income patients with kidney failure who receive charitable premium assistance.
The result would be low-income kidney patients who are very ill being kicked off their private health insurance and forced into government-sponsored plans like Medicare or Medi-Cal, even if that is not the best option for patients and their families.
