  • Renal Failure

    For US Citizen's, end stage renal failure will qualify them for Medicare. Thus the US government pays for most health care cost for these patients.

    Travelling to the US with endstage renal failure is a dangerous venture. She would be unlikely to die, by missing a single dialysis session, but would most likely need to be dialysized within a couple days of arrival.

    It is unlikely that you could try to prearrange for her dialysis. Most dialysis centers are very busy and "getting a spot" for a regular patient can be difficult. Finding one for a traveller, would be next to impossible.

    It would be best for her not to come. However, if it imperative that she come. Her doctors should try to "tune her up" as best as possible. Get her weight and potasium down to optimal range. She should have them write down what the parameters are that they use for dialysing her.

    When she arrives in the US, go to the Emergency Room of a good hospital and play dumb. "my mother is visiting for India. she came two day ago and is having trouble breathing. Oh, by the way, she normally gets dialysis three time per week and has been dialysed in three days." She will get admitted and treated. You will then have to ask about free care.

    In the US, patients get treated for life theatening conditions whether they can pay or not. Getting routine or preventitive care is impossible without insurance.

    Good Luck
