The Barnes-Jewish Hospital transplant program accepts most insurance plans. However, insurance companies periodically change their coverage. Please verify your insurance coverage with your provider. Once you have started the evaluation process, one of our financial counselors who specialize in transplant coverage will be able to assist you with insurance issues.
You will review your personal financial and insurance situation with the Barnes-Jewish Hospital financial coordinator who will be part of your transplant team.
Possible out-of-pocket costs
Out-of-pocket costs may include parking, hotel, gas, childcare, Medicare/insurance co-pays or deductibles, etc. Transplant drug costs for the first year are generally the highest.
Medications are typically covered at 80 percent by Medicare Part B for three years (longer if you qualify for Medicare due to age or disability). Monthly drug costs will vary and can range from $0 to $3,500 per month.
