This is a demonstration program to assess the feasibility of providing funds to eligible entities for the purpose of providing for reimbursement of travel and subsistence expenses incurred toward living organ donation. The intent of the program is to provide for the reimbursement for travel and subsistence expenses to donating individuals when these individuals are likely to be otherwise unable to meet such expenses. The four goals of this demonstration program are to: (1) assist an eligible entity in the implementation of an effective and efficient plan to provide assistance to individuals donating their organs; (2) identify the medical and non-medical benefits and risks of reimbursement to donating individuals and recipients alike; (3) assess the impact of this program on the number of living donors; and (4) assess the impact on access to living donation by recipients of lower socio-economic status.
