Organ Transplant Services

Medically necessary organ transplants recognized by the Kentucky Medicaid program as being performed in an acute care facility equipped to perform transplants are covered and payable normally at an amount not to exceed $75,000 per transplant.  Any exception to reimbursement amounts beyond $75,000 must be requested in writing to the Medicaid Commissioner.  Medicaid will not cover a transplant procedure that is considered experimental.
