Getting dialysis treatments in a disaster or emergency

I have Original Medicare

Your ESRD Network can help you:

  • Get your dialysis treatments
  • Find out who to contact for your supplies, drugs, transportation to dialysis services, and emergency financial assistance if you need it

Call your ESRD Network for more information. You can also call 1-800-MEDICARE to get your ESRD Network's contact information or for more information about getting dialysis in a disaster or emergency.

I have a Medicare Advantage Plan or other Medicare health plan

Contact your plan first to see if it temporarily changes its rules in a disaster or emergency. Even though your ESRD Network can help you find facilities that give dialysis services, your plan may not have a contract with an ESRD facility in the area where you're staying temporarily. Get your plan's contact information from a Personalized Search (under General Search), or search by plan name. You can also call 1-800-MEDICARE.
