Living Donor Protection Act
The Living Donor Protection Act would protect living organ donors and promote organ donation in three easy, low-cost ways:
- Prohibits life, disability, and long-term care insurance companies from denying or limiting coverage and from charging higher premiums for living organ donors;
- Clarifies that living organ donors may use FMLA time to recover from the surgeries and procedures involved in their donation; and
- Directs the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to update their materials on live organ donation to reflect these new protections and encourage more individuals to consider donating an organ.
We want constituents to urge congress to support the bill.
