Actually, the kidney should not cost you. The Transplantation of Human Organs Act forbids the purchase or sale of kidneys. Kidneys can only be donated.

You will however have to pay for:

Hospital costs for a stay of a fortnight or more.

Diagnostic tests.

Surgery

Doctors’ Fee

Expensive medication

Cost vary according to the hospital and your medical condition but you should be prepared to spend at least Rs 1.5 lakh.

In India, most Government and Public Sector employees and their family members are covered by state-supported schemes like CGHS, and ESI. Employees of some private sector companies are also covered by medical rebursement scheme.

These may provide some relief. Some have Mediclaim policies. Others have to pay for their treatment by themselves. Ask your renal care team for further information.
