With the introduction of the enhanced benefits from MediShield Life, kidney patients on dialysis will be able to claim up to $100 per month from next year.

The higher claim would help to defray medical expenses for kidney dialysis patients, especially during the current economic situation. NKF has, since 1 July 2020, further alleviated the financial stress of our patients by providing higher subsidies for dialysis and medication, which translates to substantial cost savings of between $948 to $2,688 yearly to tide them through the economic uncertainties.โž โ€” ๐—ง๐—ถ๐—บ ๐—ข๐—ฒ๐—ถ, ๐—ก๐—ž๐—™ ๐—–๐—˜๐—ข Currently, the maximum claim limit for dialysis is $1000 per month under MediShield Life.
