Roughly one in four organ donors report that they’ve faced difficulty obtaining or affording life, disability, and long-term care insurance after their donation. That’s unacceptable at a time when 13 kidney patients die each day waiting for a transplant.
It’s also why we’re excited to share that the Living Donor Protection Act has just been introduced and why we’re working so hard to hit the ground running to ensure this urgently needed legislation is passed this Congress. Take action now to tell your lawmakers why it’s so important that they support this bill and help ensure living donors can give the gift of life without fear of insurance discrimination post-transplant.
