We're not giving up on California patients and families. Can you help?
As you may know, California's legislature passed and Governor Gavin Newsom signed AB 290, a bill that forces the American Kidney Fund to stop helping patients pay their health insurance premiums when the law takes effect on January 1, 2020. We just filed a lawsuit to try to stop this from happening.
The lawsuit, Doe vs. Becerra, asks the court to strike down AB 290, arguing that the law is unconstitutional and interferes with federal health care laws. As our complaint explains, AB 290 will force AKF to end its charitable premium assistance program in California because of the legal risk that the California law poses to AKF's financial assistance efforts throughout the country. It also tramples on our constitutional rights as an organization. We hope the court will rule on this before the law takes effect.
Please phone your state lawmakers.
