Since I was diagnosed with PKD when I was 17 years old, I had never been able to get health insurance. As most of you know when you get on dialysis, you will automatically be eligible for Medicare health insurance. However, after a kidney transplant, you only have three years after that transplant when you will no longer be eligible for Medicare. My question is, does any one know what I can do now? I have expensive anti-rejection meds to pay for, and will need some sort of medical coverage. I know many people do not have health insurance coverage, but I just wondered if anyone had any ideas!
