Topic: Medicare and liver transplant

Does anyone have up to date info about medicare paying for Liver transplant when the person has cholangiocarinoma? I would like to hear from  others about this. It seems that we are waiting for Medicares clearance in order for my husband to be put on the list for a liver.  Thanks in advance Brenda

Re: Medicare and liver transplant

Brenda...as far as I know, liver transplantations for intrahepatic CC are covered by Medicare in the State of Texas only.  In fact, we supported an attorney who handled the matter.  Don't know if any other States have followed suit.  Hope this helped.
