Preparing Yourself Financially
Major health problems can impact your finances. Success in transplant includes having a realistic financial plan. It can be scary to face concerns about loss of income, employment, or insurance; high medical bills; and the need to apply for financial help. Yet facing these possibilities helps you gain a degree of control over the unimaginable. A good financial plan begins by talking with your loved ones about your situation. Also inform your transplant team about financial issues of your transplant.
