Program Description:

In 2009, the American Kidney Fund provided $155 million in financial assistance to over 87,000 dialysis patients in the United States. This assistance took the form of insurance co-payments, nutritional supplements, medical supplies, and direct financial assistance to pay for transportation to dialysis and other treatment-related necessities that insurance would not cover. AKF also launched a Medicare Part D assistance program in 2007. In addition to providing financial assistance to dialysis patients, AKF educates the public about prevention, causes, treatment, and pyscho-social aspects of kidney disease, and promotes organ donation. AKF offers a wide range of brochures about kidney disease, with many selections in Spanish. The Minority Intervention and Kidney Education program (MIKE) raises awareness of the risks of kidney disease in high-risk populations. AKF also maintains a national toll-free HelpLine in both English and Spanish to answer questions from kidney patients, their families, and the general public. AKF strives to enhance the care of kidney patients by offering a series of regional conferences, a newsletter for nephrology professionals and a Clinical Scientist in Nephrology fellowship.
