PATIENT ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

The American Transplant Foundation's Patient Assistance Program provides financial support to the most vulnerable living organ donors and transplant recipients. Typically, the individuals and families we help are making up to 200% of current FP guidelines. Applications must be submitted by transplant program social worker or transplant coordinator. Please see  below for complete eligibility guidelines and the application process. 

If you need guidance during your transplant journey, help with finding a living donor, and/or emotional support, please check out our 1+1=LIFE Mentorship Program.

The American Transplant Foundation is proud to be able to provide real help to real families when they need it the most. We help living donors to cover essential living expenses (i.e rent/mortgage) due to lost wages during recovery after surgery so they can heal without facing financial troubles.

For transplant recipients, we help pateints to keep the organ that keeps them alive by providing assistance to cover delinquent insurance premiums to prevent loss of insurance coverage, medication co-payments during insurance gap periods, and/or changes to insurance provider. 

To date, we've provided over $830,000 to the most vulnerable living donors and transplant recipients nationwide, and worked with over 80 transplant centers.
