Transplant Case Management is a statewide resource for both members and providers, to assist with identifying, facilitating, and coordinating transplant services with an appropriate transplant center. Transplant Case Management provides services while a member is being considered for a transplant, throughout the transplant process until the member is successfully transplanted and stable (usually 1 year after transplant), and requires no further specific interventions. There is no cost for the program and it is confidential.
