The mission of the Transplant Financial Coordinators Association, a non-profit professional organization, is to coordinate the dissemination of useful information related to Transplant Finance. Our goal is to ensure we provide accurate financial information to our patients and their families in a compassionate and tactful manner, while maximizing reimbursement for our transplant centers.
This will be accomplished through:
- Continuous education of ourselves, our patients and their families, third party payors, and our transplant centers.
- Information networking to share our collective knowledge.
- Advocating for our patients, their families, and our transplant centers with third party payors and governmental bodies.
- Working cooperatively with other members of our transplant teams to ensure the best possible outcomes for our patients.
The Transplant Financial Coordinators Association envisions a transplant environment where we function as an integral part of our transplant teams, where no patient suffers unnecessary financial hardship, and the financial requirements of our programs are fully met.
