The Living Donor Protection Act- HR 5263-Referred to the Subcommittee on Health

At this time, while living donors are considered heroes and have saved and extended lives, insurance companies have all too often denied insurance coverage to living donors , limited coverage to living donors, raised premiums (which has drastically affected living donors) and declined life insurance, disability insurance, or long-term care insurance applications submitted by living donors. The Long Island Chapter of Transplant Recipients International Organization supports Representatives Nadler and Burgess on their leadership, guidance, understanding and validation of the importance of the role of living donors giving the gift of life as Representatives Nadler and Burgess stepped forward to sponsor the Living Donor Protection Act of 2014.
