Baguio City Representative Mark Go said that the passage of House Bill No. 6803 will help dialysis patients get more access to renal replacement therapy.
The Baguio politiko is co-author of the Comprehensive Renal Replacement Therapy Act.
Go explained that the proposed measure will include renal placement therapy in PhilHealth’s list of services.
“The passage of the bill will make more renal therapy services available to less fortunate patients, and those coming from the provinces,” he said.
Go said the bill will mandate “free dialysis treatment to indigent patients in all national, regional and provincial government hospitals.”
