Financial Assistance Fit for You

There are more financial resources available to transplant patients and their family today than ever before. We're here to help you find the right ones.

Assessing Your Financial and Insurance Needs

During your pre-transplant evaluation process, our financial coordinators and social workers will sit down with you and your family to get a clear picture of your financial situation and begin creating your strategy. They'll help you understand the cost of transplant surgery, what's covered and guide you toward any resources you may need to help you pay for what's not. They'll also work directly with your insurance company to find answers to common insurance questions like:

  • Is transplantation a covered procedure?
  • Are there minimums, maximums or exclusions regarding transplant, rehabilitation (in- and outpatient) and home health?
  • Is there a lifetime maximum on the policy?
  • Is rehabilitation covered?
  • Are post-transplant tests covered?
  • Are immunosuppressant drugs covered?
  • Are there caps on generic versus brand names, and what will the associated costs be?

Our financial coordinators and social workers will stay in close contact with you and your insurance company throughout the transplant process.

Navigating Patient Housing and Travel Expenses
