Objectives : This study examines the socioeconomic burden of chronic kidney disease (CKD) in Korea. Methods : Overall process of estimating the cost of CKD is based on the cost of illness study. Total cost is divided into both direct and indirect cost. The data used in this study include the 2011 National Health Insurance Claims data, and other secondary databases that are needed to estimate indirect costs. The prevalence-based cross- sectional design approach was used. Results : The results show that socioeconomic burden of chronic kidney disease is alarming in Korea, where total direct and indirect costs associated with CKD are estimated over KRW 5,000 billion (US$ 5 billion) in 2011. Given the limitation of study data and estimation process, the results might have been underestimated. Compared with other major chronic disease, cost of CKD can be considered as substantial. Conclusion : It is suggested that public awareness regarding the significance of CKD should be enhanced. In addition, more prompt attention to prevention and management of CKD need to be paid.
