FOR TRANSPLANT AND CATASTROPHIC CONDITIONS

 


NTAF

is a private, non-profit 501 (c) (3) charitable organization. It takes some research on their pages to find out what types of service they offer . Here are some of the things that I accertained from the site :

 

 
NTAF has more than 24 years experience empowering patients and communities to raise funds to cover uninsured medical expenses related to transplantation and catastrophic injury.

NTAF staff will be by your side every step of the way – through the process of raising funds in the community, and also through the process of applying for financial assistance. NTAF is your partner in financing transplantation and recovery.

 

They also provide individual web sites for personal fundraising.

MORE ABOUT NTAF :

The funds raised are put into an account for the individual patient.The value of this type of fundraising is that if an organization or corporations wants to pay towards the funds , they can be assured that all funds go to the patient and no other cause. From that account these things can be paid for :

  • Health insurance premiums, deductibles/co-payments.
  • Medications
  • Transportation to and from the transplant center for patient and companion.
  • Air ambulance for emergency visits to the transplant center.
    Relocati
    on or moving expenses associated with accessibility to transplant center.
  • Temporary housing due to relocation.
  • Parking fees for visits to the transplant center.
  • Meals and lodging for family support person.
  •  Hospital telephone and television privileges.
  • Post transplant biopsies/tests.
  • Living donor expenses.
  • Search fees for bone marrow donor match.
