Transferral of waiting time

As addressed in the OPTN/UNOS Policy 3.2.2.1, patients may transfer their primary waiting time from one transplant center to another center. This transfer may be necessary for a number of reasons, such as a change in the transplant candidate’s health insurance or if the candidate has moved.
