This article was originally published in Clinica
Subsidies for renal dialysis, haemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis services for high-risk patients seeking care at voluntary welfare organisation hospitals in Singapore will be increased by 150%. The increase, which will bring the total budget for renal dialysis alone to S$4.2m (US$2.7m), will be announced in the April 1 review, according to the country's ministry of health. The move has been initiated in order to enable physicians to choose "the most appropriate therapy for patients based on medical and social considerations", said the ministry.
