LOBIONDO ANNOUNCES LATEST INFORMATION ON DIALYSIS SERVICES FOR VETERANS

160px-FranklobiondoU.S. Representative Frank A. LoBiondo (NJ-02) today released the latest information about local dialysis services approved by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for South Jersey veterans.

At LoBiondo’s request, the VA provided details of its existing blanket ordering agreements (BOAs) for dialysis service providers serving South Jersey veterans. The BOAs were approved by the VA in summer 2010 with private providers in South Jersey. For enrolled veterans approved by the Wilmington VA Medical Center on a case by case basis, dialysis services are available under the VA’s BOAs with the following South Jersey providers in the 2nd Congressional District:

Fresenius Medical Care – Atlantic City

1501 Atlantic Ave

Atlantic City

Renal Care Group – Cape May

1259 Route 9 South

Cape May Court House

Renal Care Group – Egg Harbor

6701 Blackhorse Pike

Egg Harbor Township

LoBiondo requested the BOA details upon the rejection of a proposal by Shore Memorial Hospital to provide dialysis services to local veterans. In November 2010, LoBiondo and New Jersey Senator Robert Menendez petitioned the VA in support of the proposal. In denying the request, the VA announced that it already had contractual agreements with local dialysis providers, though such agreements were unknown to the lawmakers and many local veterans.
