NKF is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to providing affordable haemodialysis treatment to the lower income group, the most important benefit is reserved for our patients in terms of lower charges. The initial setup cost for the partner is RM1.2 million. There is no profit to the partner.
Stringent procedures are necessary as the cost of dialysis treatment is subsidised by NKF and the Government. NKF lowered its dialysis treatment fees for non-sponsored patients from RM100.00 to RM90.00 per treatment with effect from 1 April 2015. Successful applicants will need to pay RM90.00 per dialysis treatment on admission. NKF will help eligible patients to apply for the Ministry of Health (MOH) subsidy of RM100.00 per dialysis treatment. The MOH subsidy was increased from RM50 to RM100 per dialysis treatment with effect from 1 January 2018.
At NKF, each dialysis treatment costs approximately RM170. The rate for self-paying patients is RM90 per treatment and those subsidised by MOH do not have to pay; the balance of RM80.00 per treatment for each NKF patient is subsidised by NKF via its fundraising efforts.
NKF subsidised more than 1,700 dialysis patients in 2020.
Patients at NKF-linked haemodialysis centres also benefit from lower charges for injections of Erythropoietin, a drug that increases their red blood cells and heparin, an anti-blood clotting drug.
And thanks to our bulk purchases, the dialysis centres themselves enjoy the benefit of lower prices for consumables, such as dialysers, arterial venous bloodlines, fistula needles, haemodialysis solutions such as acid concentrates and bicarbonate concentrates, drip sets, saline solutions and transducer protectors among many others.
As the first non-governmental organisation to offer haemodialysis treatment in Malaysia, the NKF has developed terms and conditions that encourage third parties to partner with us in opening up more dialysis centres for the lower income group.
