Organ transplants can be lifesaving treatments
Transplants are costly and complex. Without careful contract negotiation, along with provider oversight, financial and clinical outcomes can vary dramatically.
That’s why thousands of clients partner with Optum to reduce medical expenses and to gain access to quality transplant providers through our unique Transplant Resource Services (TRS) and Managed Transplant Program (MTP).
Costs vary depending on the type of transplant and where, geographically, the transplant is being performed, leading to unpredictable costs.
