Live kidney donor travel reimbursement

The purpose of the live kidney donor travel reimbursement scheme is to assist permanent WA Country Health Service residents to participate in the Western Australian live kidney donation program.

What is it?

The WA Country Health Service (WACHS) is committed to the Western Australian organ donor program. The WACHS live kidney donor travel reimbursement scheme provides suitable kidney donors with assistance in travelling to Perth to participate in the program.

Under the scheme, WACHS will reimburse reasonable travel expenses incurred by donors for kidney donation assessment, retrieval and one-post operative visit (if this cannot occur through Telehealth).

The costs for medical tests, hospital accommodation and medical specialist appointments are met by the tertiary hospital coordinating the live kidney donation.
