Should we pay to be Organ Donors?
Deceased organ donation costs are completely covered by the MOH, once the donor is approved by NOD-Lb. The MOH will cover all the expenses incurred by the hospital from the time of the brain death diagnosis to the end of the hospital stay (regardless of the family’s decision about donation). The payment is a forfeit not included in the financial ceiling of the hospital.
In addition, NOD-Lb covers the fees of the physicians and the healthcare personnel that have spent extra time to take care of the deceased donor (brain dead donor) (up to a maximum of US$ 2000).
