People with Disabilities

I have end-stage renal disease and Medicare. How long does my Medicare coverage last?

Enrollment in Parts A and B for people with end-stage renal disease generally ends 3 years after they receive a successful organ transplant. Starting in 2023, you can remain enrolled in Part B beyond this 3-year time period if you do not have any other health insurance coverage, for the purpose of covering your immunosuppressive drugs. The premium for this extended Part B coverage will be $103 in 2024, which is less than the standard Part B premium (which is set at $174.70 for 2024).

While we have made every effort to provide accurate information in these FAQs, people should contact the health insurance Marketplace or Medicaid agency in their state for guidance on their specific circumstances.
