NEW for 2024 Certification Testing
We are happy to announce that the TFCA has partnered with the American Board for Transplant Certification (ABTC) to administer TFCA certification testing. There is currently a committee working with the ABTC on the testing process. As you all know, certification has been years in the making. This is not only a historical milestone for the Transplant Financial Coordinator’s Association, but for Transplant Financial Coordinators across the country. We look forward to working with the ABTC during this transition. For those of you already certified, your certifications will be extended. Those details will be covered in the new ABTC testing process. When the final details of the new certification testing process have been finalized, we will post an update to the TFCA website and the Transplant Financial Coordinator’s Listserv. We expect this to be sometime over the next few weeks.

In 2018 we embarked on a new era!
The TFCA offers certification testing for the first time. Our organization worked for seventeen years through three Presidents and numerous Board Members and TFCA Members to present the first Transplant Financial Coordinator’s Certification examination. This was a giant step in our goal to forge ahead to professionalize our important role in Transplant.
Congratulations to the 2019 group of Certified Transplant Financial Coordinators!
Certification process for the TFC
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. Assuring a healthcare organization’s financial viability during economic crisis is contingent upon the overall ability to employ financial strategies that drive maximum reimbursement.
This is accomplished through:
- Continuous education of the Transplant Financial Coordinator, 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.
