This letter explains ANNA’s opposition to any cuts to the Medicare ESRD program and recommends that Congress take steps to clarify that individuals diagnosed with ESRD be permitted to obtain their group health insurance whether that is through an Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) plan or a health benefit exchange (Exchanges) as well as clarify that individuals with ESRD have the same right to choose their health insurance as other Americans do.
