Transplant Center

Financial Considerations

Most insurance companies will pay for organ transplantation when medical need is documented. The liver, kidney and pancreas transplant programs are approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) for reimbursement.

The WK John C. McDonald Regional Transplant Center’s policy is to provide quality transplantation services to all patients, regardless of socioeconomic status. Our financial coordinator reviews insurance information with each patient to assure that the patient is aware of their coverage for transplantation services. The financial coordinator assists patients and their families in finding financial resources to help alleviate the expenses of transplantation and medication costs following the transplant.
