The Transplant Journey
Our goal is to ensure referring health care professionals are aware of the help we can provide immediately after a specialist’s initial diagnosis – to help the patient navigate through this process earlier, leverage our resources sooner and make the process for the patient and their family much smoother.
The diagram below is meant to serve as a visual only. It is important to note that every patient has different needs and the journey is not the same for all patients.
Health care professional diagnoses patient to be in need of an organ transplant; patient contacts their insurance company to determine percentage of insurance coverage they will receive.
Transplant journey with NFT
Transplant journey without NFT
With the help of NFT, both medical and everyday costs are estimated for a patient to empower them with knowledge. NFT can help provide grants and identify other supplemental funding that may help pay for these costs.
Transplant centers often require patients to maintain a health care plan while waiting for an organ match. NFT is able to assist with covering the costs of insurance premiums through grants to patients.
NFT can help with the living, lodging and travel expenses for patients and caregivers who are required to stay within a certain radius of the transplant center to manage the threat of organ rejection post-surgery through grants and patients.
We look at the whole picture with you so there are no surprises – and you are financially prepared every step of the way.
From pre-transplant deposits and financial obligations – to post-transplant needs, such as travel, lodging, insurance premiums and long-term care – we are here to help make sure your ability to realize a second chance is not denied by an inability to pay.
For all of our success, there are more patients every year who need our help. Help us fulfill our mission.
