One patient who is benefiting from the higher subsidies is 74 year-old Mr Chin Hap Hin. He previously had to pay about $544 a month for his dialysis after subsidies and reimbursement from medical insurance. With the higher subsidies, he only has to pay about $317, which amounts to a substantial savings of $2,700 a year.
Said Mr Chin, "Both my wife and I are unemployed and I am suffering from many other medical conditions apart from kidney failure. I also have ear and eye problems, diabetes, hypertension and Parkinson's disease. I not only have to pay for my dialysis treatment but also other medical expenses. My wife also suffers from hypertension and requires medication and regular check-ups. The savings from the higher subsidies will help us greatly to pay for our medical bills."
We will continue journeying with patients every step in their rehabilitation to better support them with affordable and sustainable dialysis treatment and medication amid the rising cost of living.
