Financial Considerations for Kidney Transplant Surgery

Organ transplantation is based on need rather than ability to pay by law. Your transplant social worker and insurance specialist will assist you in exploring options and coverage. Living donor expenses and all costs related to the transplant surgery, the recipient's insurance or Medicare covers evaluation process, tests, hospitalization and follow-up. Lost wages for time away from work and travel expenses are not covered.
