This exclusion on a medical insurance policy means that the policy may not cover expenses related to the acquisition of an organ transplant, such as but not limited to, donor search, typing, harvesting, transportation, and administrative costs. This exclusion is put in place as the issue of organ transplantation can be sensitive and in some countries and regions, this practice may be considered questionable and may pose challenges for insurers. They may find it morally challenging to cover such costs. Organ transplantation is a medical procedure in which a healthy organ is removed from one individual and placed into the body of another individual to replace a damaged or missing organ. The donor and recipient may be at the same location or the organ may be transported from a donor site to another location. Organs and/or tissues that are transplanted within the same person’s body are called autografts. Transplants that are performed between two individuals of the same species are called allografts. Allografts can either come from a living or cadaveric source. The availability of coverage for organ transplantation will depend on the specific policy and the terms and conditions of the policy. It is important to check the policy for the coverage on the specific organ transplant.
