The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has announced it will be allowing donors to get their liver donated if they don’t have insurance or a high enough deductible.
The agency announced the change to a new policy announced in April, but the change was delayed until next year due to the death of the beloved Dr. Robert C. Balsamo.
The new policy states that the National Institutes will only accept liver donations from people who have insurance, have a high deductible, and have a current Medicare card.
That means people who don’t qualify for Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) can now donate their liver to the agency, which will be paid for by the donation.
In the meantime, the NIH says that if you are covered by Medicare, you may still donate your liver.
Here are the top 10 reasons you should donate your kidney: 1.
You are the only one who can do this.
If you are unable to get a kidney, you should be donating because you are the last person who can.
This is because kidney donation is only available to people who are on Medicaid, or to a person who is a beneficiary of CHIP.
The program will only be open to people of color, immigrants, and the elderly.
It will make a difference.
A kidney can make a big difference in a person’s health and well-being.
You can donate your organs to save the lives of people with kidney failure, or save the life of someone who is sick or suffering.
You get to be a part of something big.
Your donation is going to be used to improve the lives and health of people living with kidney disease.
You’ll also get to share your story about your donation and the impact your donation has on others, and help people who need kidneys, said Dr. Paul Schulz, a kidney donor at the National Center for Transplantation.
It means you will have a family member or close friend who will appreciate and care for you.
“I am grateful for the opportunity to donate my kidney to the National Institute of Health, and I have a special connection with the transplant team here in Bethesda,” said the donation recipient, who wished to remain anonymous.
“With the opportunity that I have received, I can say that I will never be forgotten, and will be forever grateful for this opportunity,” she added.
You have the potential to make a real difference.
If a person has a disease like Hepatitis C or C.D.A., and they want to donate their kidney, they should consider donating it to someone who will be receiving care and treatment, according to Dr. Bruce Fenton, who is the director of the transplantation program at the University of Utah.
“If you are someone who has a history of liver disease, then your chance of success is higher if you donate your organ,” he said.
You will get a good return on your investment.
When people donate their organs, they donate something that is part of them, which is what they can’t do with their own organs.
If they can donate their own kidney, the chance of receiving the kidney from someone else is higher.
“This means that they will have someone who can care for them and who is going into the care and rehab process for them,” Schulz said.
You’re not going to need to pay for your own transplant.
Your kidney donation will be covered by insurance and the donation will also pay for the cost of the hospital, surgery, and post-transplant care.
“We think it will reduce the amount of money that people are spending on expensive transplants,” said Fenton.
“And in the end, this is all good news.”
Your body is not a burden to society.
“It will allow people to live healthier, longer lives, which can mean better health, better quality of life, and less stress for everyone,” Schulz said.
It’s a good thing.
If it is the only thing that you can donate, it will make the difference between life and death.
You won’t have to worry about paying your rent, bills, or any other financial burden.
“You will be doing something positive for people who live in poor areas,” he added.
You don’t need to worry if your donor doesn’t live up to your expectations.
The donor’s organs will be kept in a laboratory in Bethesda until they are used.
You and the donor will be treated like a family, and there will be support available.
“The people that we are going to donate to are really good people,” said Schulos.
“There is no reason they can not be as happy as they are.
They will be well taken care of.”
