Admission Eligibility & Cost Structure
NKF’s Dialysis Programme
To ensure that only needy patients are admitted into NKF’s dialysis programme, all applicants will undergo financial assessment through a comprehensive means test. Patients who can afford private dialysis care will be directed to private dialysis centres.
The means test is based on the Ministry of Health’s national framework and system that looks into the patients’ and their family members’ declared income. For more information on means testing and subsidies from the national means test system, visit this MOH link.
Patients whose applications are rejected can still appeal to the NKF Patient Appeal Committee. The Committee comprising members independent of NKF will review and decide on the merits of such appeal cases for admission to NKF’s haemodialysis programme.
Kidney Live Donor Support Fund
The Kidney Live Donor Support Fund provides financial assistance to needy live kidney donors. Only Singaporean Citizens and Permanent Residents referred by public health institutions will be eligible to apply for this Fund and must meet the NKF means test criteria. Only the recipient is required to pass the NKF means test criteria.
The funding coverage includes pre-transplant screening and evaluation costs, post-operation costs, loss of income and insurance premiums. For further enquiries, please call the admission hotline at 6506 2187 or email us at email@example.com.
