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. Even though the additional $100 is not enough to offset the cost of one dialysis session, "But it's better than nothing," Mr Toh, 51, who is on haemodialysis for the past 10 years. ❝Every additional help counts as dialysis is an expensive treatment and over a long period of time. 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.❞ — 𝗧𝗶𝗺 𝗢𝗲𝗶, 𝗡𝗞𝗙 𝗖𝗘𝗢 Currently, the maximum claim limit for dialysis is $1000 per month under MediShield Life. If the MediShield Life Council’s proposal is approved, the maximum claim limit will be raised to $1100 per month from next year onwards.
