I have found very little info on this and even the people at DaVita acted like this just wasn't done. She has excellent private insurance in addition to her Medicare so I think it might be covered. If anyone can offer help or information I would truly appreciate it. She lives in the Grand Rapids, Michigan area. Thank you!

    That's not exactly true, HomeDialysispartners. The problem I have is that you seem to be advertising a service that doesn't yet exist--and that you don't know how to set up. I'm afraid setting up a staff assisted home dialysis program isn't something we can help you with. But I do want our visitors to know what is and isn't really there, NOW, to help them.

    I'm glad you're finding some help. It's to everyone's benefit if there are more options for patients.

    Dori:
    Staff Assisted Hemodialysis does exist. I have been involved now with two companies housed in Texas that do exactly that. It is very specialized and the patients have to meet certain criteria to qualify, ie health situation and insurance qualification.

    Hi Guest,
    Yes, we know that staff-assisted hemodialysis does exist. There are companies that offer it now, and I'm aware of at least one of the ones in Texas, which has been around for a number of years now. The main criteria patients have to meet is a health plan other than Medicare, which unfortunately doesn't pay for it.
