GERMANY Nov. 7, 2018 – Fresenius Medical Care, the world’s largest provider of dialysis products and services, today released the following statement in response to the defeat of the ballot initiative Proposition 8 in California.
“We are pleased that California voters have rejected Proposition 8 in yesterday’s ballot election. This is a big win for California dialysis patients,” said Rice Powell, CEO of Fresenius Medical Care. “Proposition 8 was a deeply flawed measure that would have dangerously reduced access for dialysis patients in California by setting arbitrary limits on what insurance companies are required to pay for dialysis care. We at Fresenius Medical Care are committed to offering high-quality products and services to our patients and will continue to do so in California and around the world.”
Fresenius Medical Care is the world’s largest provider of products and services for individuals with renal diseases of which around 3.2 million patients worldwide regularly undergo dialysis treatment. Through its network of 3,872 dialysis clinics, Fresenius Medical Care provides dialysis treatments for 329,085 patients around the globe. Fresenius Medical Care is also the leading provider of dialysis products such as dialysis machines or dialyzers.
