The Approximate Cost for Kidney Transplant

The Approximate Cost for Kidney TransplantThe approximate cost of kidney transplant tends to decline in recent years, because many hospitals in the world can do this surgery. However, it is still one expensive operation for most kidney failure patients.

When is kidney transplant suggested?

Kidney transplant is one treatment option for patients with end stage kidney failure. When kidneys fail to work, renal replacement therapy or kidney repairing treatment is needed to prolong patients’ lifespan. Generally, patients are suggested to prepare for kidney transplant operation, when their kidney function declines to about 20%.

What is the approximate cost for kidney transplant?

According to clinical survey, the average cost of kidney transplant surgery is about $50,000 to $100,000 depending on the hospital and the country. By contrast, the cost for kidney transplantation in India and China is a little cheaper than that in other countries.

In fact, the cost of some other factors should be added into the total cost

The total cost includes:

- Pre-transplant testing and examination

- Surgery

- Fees for the donor’s recovery

- Hospitalization expenses

- Follow-up care and examination

- Expenses for doctors who are in charge of your case

- Anti-rejection medications which may cost about $2,500 every month

- Travel to get to your transplant hospital in other countries

- The cost for your family member who is accompanying with you

If all of these aspects are took into account, the total cost of kidney transplant will be about 262,900. If this operation is covered by insurance, patients don’t need to worry. However, the insurance company will decide whether patients actually need a kidney transplant or not. If they are not a candidate, the insurance company won’t pay the fees.
