What Are the Chances of Winning Disability if I Am on Dialysis?

Question

Can I get Social Security disability becase I need dialysis several times a week?

Answer

There are two types of dialysis treatmentperitoneal dialysis and hemodialysis. Generally, when a person states that their kidney impairment necessitates dialysis treatment, they are referring to in-facility hemodialysis treatment.

If you receive hemodialysis treatment at least three times weekly, there is no doubt that you will be approved for disability benefits through the Social Security administration. The need for dialysis treatments must be chronic, not temporary.
