Non-benefit Guided

In the Non-benefit Guided, members are able to use any transplant network or program.  However, candidates often choose TransplantCOE or TransplantELITE programs because of their favorable outcomes, volumes, and years of experience.

We advise candidates to compare transplant program outcomes.   Outcomes to consider are waitlist survival, post-transplant survival, graft survival, and transplant volume trends over time.   Like most skilled professions, practice leads to specialization and experienced specialists become experts.

Your nurse case manager can be very helpful, so communicate with her/him frequently. Case managers can request Member Decision information, which combine outcome measures in formats that make program differences clear.

TransplantCOE and TransplantELITE networks include solid organ and bone marrow transplant centers which attract patients from all over the world.
