Rights specific to Children

Rights specific to Adults

Rights through the Ministry of Health

  • Kidney failure being treated by dialysis is found on the Ministry of Health's list of serious illnesses, meaning that such patients are eligible for exemption from payment for various medical services.
  • Considered to be chronically ill, dialysis patients are eligible for a medication payment ceiling for purchasing medications included in the healthcare basket. It is recommended to only use this right as a supplement to the exemption from payment for medications (in accordance with each health plan's procedures) included as part of the entitlement listed above for those considered to have a "serious illness".
  • Dialysis patients who go to the emergency room are exempt from emergency room and treatment costs.
