Grants for Kidney Transplant Patients

The American Kidney Fund (AKF) can help patients who need financial assistance during their transplant journey.

As a patient with end-stage renal disease (ESRD), it’s very important to have medical insurance. The problem is, many people with ESRD eventually become too ill to work, and therefore lose coverage through their company health insurance.

Many are able to continue this insurance plan through COBRA, but this comes at a high premium that many are unable to afford. Others may be able to get health insurance independently, but again this comes at a premium many struggle to afford.

To help address this problem, the American Kidney Fund offers a grant program that can help you pay your health insurance premiums until you are able to get your transplant. This is just one of the grants available to kidney patients through the AKF.
