Other options to consider

Transferral of waiting time

As addressed in the OPTN Policy, patients may transfer their primary waiting time from one transplant center to another center. This transfer may be necessary for a number of reasons, such as a change in the transplant candidate’s health insurance or if the candidate has moved.
