Dialysis information for people with End-Stage Renal Disease

Dialysis during travel

You can still travel within the United States if you need dialysis. Your facility can help you plan your treatment along the route of your trip before you travel. Find out about Medicare’s coverage when you travel outside the U.S.

While you're traveling you may need to pay your co-pay when you get your dialysis. Check with the social worker at your dialysis facility to learn more.

Transportation for dialysis treatment

In some cases, Medicare may cover ambulance transportation when these apply:

If you have a 

Medicare Advantage Plan (Part C)

, your plan may cover some non-ambulance transportation to dialysis centers and doctors.

If you need non-ambulance transportation help, talk to the social worker at your dialysis facility to find out what's available.
