St. Louis Post-Dispatch Editorial Praises Results NCLEJ Seeks on Behalf of Kidney Dialysis Patients

Earlier this year, NCLEJ and colleagues challenged a new Missouri policy that requires Medicaid recipients to move from their homes into nursing homes to get necessary kidney dialysis treatment. According to the editorial, at least 14 Missourians have now had to move into nursing homes to be kept alive, taxpayers are having to pay more for their care, and the lawsuit sets out “real solutions based on how other states keep dialysis patients in their communities.”
