Chronic Renal Dialysis Cover

Chronic Renal Dialysis

Chronic renal dialysis is covered through the KidneyCare Programme and focuses on members with chronic kidney disease who need dialysis. Living with chronic kidney disease is a lifelong journey, often made difficult because of the significant need for regular care, complex medicine, restrictive diets, and numerous tests and investigations.

The KidneyCare Programme is designed to ensure that our medical scheme members living with chronic kidney disease are managed according to international best practice guidelines, to ensure the best quality of care and quality of life.
