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.

Transportation for dialysis treatment

In some cases, Medicare may cover ambulance transportation when you have End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), need dialysis, and need ambulance transportation to or from a dialysis facility.

If you’re in a Medicare Advantage Plan (Part C), the plan may cover some non-ambulance transportation to dialysis centers and doctors. Call your plan for more information. Get your plan's contact information from a Personalized Search (under General Search), or search by plan name.
