House Lawmakers Call On Biden To Direct $25 Million To KidneyX
December 30, 2021
A bipartisan group of lawmakers led by Reps. Suzan DelBene (D-WA) and Larry Bucshon (R-IN) is asking the Biden administration to direct $25 million to the public-private KidneyX initiative in the president’s next budget proposal. Kidney Care Partners praises the funding push.
“This critical funding for KidneyX is an important step toward addressing existing barriers to innovation in kidney care and ensuring patients have access to the most advanced innovations, treatments and therapies,” said Michele Kimball, executive director of KCP. “KCP applauds the leadership of Representatives DelBene and Bucshon for advocating for innovations in kidney disease management so Americans living with kidney disease and kidney failure can continue to get the best care, access, and choice there is.”
