As a kidney transplant tecipient, I urge everybody to ask the Connecticut Senate to observe the lead of Connecticut’s Home and go HB6387, the Dwelling Donor Safety Act, which can present complete take care of our Kidney Sufferers. This Act will:
• Remove discrimination towards residing donors within the procurement of life, incapacity, and long-term care insurance coverage. Insurance coverage firms can not drop a residing donor, change their premiums, or refuse protection based mostly on their standing as a residing kidney donor.
• Develop well being education schemes to extend consciousness of continual kidney illness amongst main care physicians and the residents of Connecticut.
• Assist transplantation as the popular remedy for continual kidney illness (my nephrologists by no means recommended transplantation to me – it was the nurses whispering in my ear to encourage me to hunt a transplant!)
• Encourage the event of early detection and prevention of continual kidney illness within the main care setting.
• Promote well being fairness within the detection and remedy of continual kidney illness.
• Undertake an “Decide-Out Donor Registry” for Connecticut, changing the present “Decide-In” system.
Allow us to assist the kidney sufferers of Connecticut!
