Financing A Transplant
Financing a transplant raises many questions and concerns for patients and their families. The first step in developing a financial strategy is to figure out how much of your costs insurance will cover. Your financial coordinator or social worker can help. Then you can begin to explore other funding sources.
Most patients use a combination of sources. Some patients can finance the transplant procedure through their primary insurance coverage and use savings and other private funds to pay for other expenses. Many patients work with community fundraising groups to complete their transplant financial strategy.
