The Nebraska Chronic Renal Disease (CRD) Program helps eligible Nebraska residents diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Disease (End-Stage Renal Disease) with the cost of medicines and dialysis services.
Eligible individuals must:
The program only reimburses for prescribed drugs listed on the Reimbursable Drug Formulary. Only generic drugs are reimbursed—unless there isn't a generic available. If that's the case, it is clearly marked on the Formulary.
Reimbursable dialysis services can be received in a dialysis center, a hospital out-patient setting or at home.
The program pays for covered services after all other payment sources—including Medicare, Medicaid, private insurance, or any other health insurance—have determined and paid their share.
Costs for renal-related services that aren't reimbursed by the program or other payers are the responsibility of the client.
The client assistance limit for state fiscal year 2018-19 (July 2018 - June 2019) is $12,100 per client.
