AM I A CANDIDATE FOR DESENSITIZATION THERAPY?

 

Here are some questions to ask your transplant center clinician to determine if you’re a candidate for desensitization therapy:

 

Does my Transplant Center offer desensitization?

 

I have a Living Donor (LD) that is not compatible:

  • I have been in a Paired-donation network and have not had any calls for transplant.
  • I have been on the waiting list for the average waiting time for my center and have not been called in for transplant.
  • I have been called in for transplant several times with positive cross-match to donors.

 

What is my CPRA?

 

Will my Medicare/Medicaid insurance cover the expenses for the medication required for desensitization?

 

Is there patient financial assistance available to cover out-of-pocket expenses?

 

Where is desensitization treatment offered?

  • Hospital
  • Outpatient Infusion Center (OIC)
  • Dialysis
  • Home
