Cost for Donor

What is the approximate cost for the person Donating the kidney?

I've heard that there should be no cost to the living donor. But I searched online to be sure. All the info I read supports that. The insurance of the person receiving the kidney is to cover the costs of your testing and surgery and hospital stay. It will not cover lost wages while you're off work. And any follow up visits over the years for you will not be covered. The info also said if there is a complication, the insurance is supposed to pay for that as well but they may try to charge you for it.

Before anyone considers donating, they should get clear answers before going ahead with this.
