Dialysis Needs to be Globalized

Dialysis Needs to be Globalized
Dialysis Needs to be Globalized

There are 800,000 people in the US and 300,000 people in Japan who are on dialysis. Dialysis is not a cheap treatment but fortunately governmental and private insurance covers almost all the cost. Many people who have complete kidney failures need dialysis 3 times a week.

I developed diabetes when I was in 30s’ and it lead to me having kidney disease. I had liver surgery on Feb 25 and my kidneys did not do well and I was put on dialysis for the first time. Once you started dialysis, it appears that I have to continue the treatment. I on dialysis twice a week now … not three times a week.

I can travel to anywhere in the US and my insurance will cover the treatments. However, if I travel overseas to Japan, my insurance will not cover any dialysis cost. The dialysis treatment in Japan will cost about $350 to $450 per treatment. This applies to the people in Japan traveling to the US. People from Japan has to pay $700 to $1,200 for dialysis treatment.

This makes it impossible for many people who need dialysis to travel overseas. I think it will be great idea to come up with a treaty between the counties to provide mutual dialysis cost control measures. Or insurance companies to come up with the global insurance plan.
