Organ Donation Costs

By John D. Grauer
February 17, 2014 Category: General

Cost Is Not A Consideration for Organ or Tissue Donation At any time during your life, you can choose to become an organ and tissue donor. This is a personal decision that you should take time to carefully consider. While there are many valid considerations to weigh, cost is not one. A common misconception is that your estate will get stuck with a bill for the charges related to removal procedure. This is not true. Neither the family of the deceased nor the estate of the deceased will bear any cost for the removal procedure. ALL costs related to donation are paid by the organ/tissue recovery agencies or the transplant center, including the charges for the operating room and surgeon. On the flipside, the decedents family and estate will not be compensated for donation, because it is gift and compensation is prohibited under National Organ Transplant Act. Your Attorney and Physician serve as excellent resources for learning more about the decision to become a donor and how to accomplish
