What is the National Transplant Network?
Humana's National Transplant Network (NTN) is a network of facilities with transplant programs that is available to Humana members. The NTN offers services for covered solid organ transplants as well as stem cell transplants. Here's how it works:
- To be part of the NTN, transplant facilities and programs must meet certain criteria, including the number of transplants performed each year, outcomes, survival rates, and accreditation.
- Medicare must also certify all adult transplant programs
- You and your doctor will participate in selecting which NTN program you'll use
- Your transplant services team will assist you and your doctor in the choice of an NTN program
- Pediatric programs may be available for your dependents
