Learn about your insurance and funding options for home dialysis
Your primary focus at this time needs to be on deciding which dialysis treatment, and which dialysis provider, is right for you. We will help you with one-on-one dialysis options education. We will also help you identify dialysis providers in your area, whether for home dialysis or in-center hemodialysis, if that is what you choose.
At HDT, we want to serve as a resource to you and others touched by kidney disease in and around San Diego County. We will contact your insurance provider to assess your coverage for home dialysis care via HDT. We accept most major health plans including Employer Group Health Plans, Covered California Plans, HMO’s PPO’s, POS’s, Medicare, Medi-cal, Medi-cal Managed Care, and Cal MediConnect. We will assess your plan benefits and inform you of any anticipated deductibles, co-insurance, or any out-of-pocket expenses that might be anticipated. In addition, a social worker is available to help look at your individual financial situation to educate you about and help you access other financial resources for which you may qualify.
