Advocacy & Public Policy

Living Donor Protection Act of 2016

ASN endorses and is advocating for passage of the Living Donor Protection Act of 2016. This bill prohibits life, disability, and long term care insurance companies from denying or limiting coverage and from charging higher premiums for living organ donors, enabling more Americans to consider living donation. By creating job security for living organ donors and ensuring them time to recover from their donation surgeries, as well as enduring education concerning these new protections, your important legislation will likely help countless Americans receive the gift of life.

Join ASN in asking your Congressional delegation to cosponsor this important bill.
