Did You Know? Boomer Esiason Foundation has a Lung Transplant Grant Program

This is from the Boomer Esiason foundation web site. If you are a transplant candidate you may want to talk to your social worker at your clinic about this.

While the cost of transplantation is typically covered by most insurance companies, travel and relocation costs are typically absorbed by the patient’s families. The BEF Lung Transplant Grants Program is designed to help families cover the expenses that are not covered by their insurance.

Possible expenses to the recipient and family include, but are not limited to: Patient and family transportation costs for evaluation, surgery, and clinic visits after transplant; and housing, food, and living expenses associated with relocation to the transplant site.
