Not Transplanted, Too Sick To Transplant,
or Failure to Survive
In the event that a TFP client is not transplanted, becomes too sick to transplant, or recovers, all money remaining will be transferred to an unmatched account where unpaid, legitimate medical expenses will be reviewed for payment. These reimbursements are not matched by GTF funds. Legitimate medical expenses include prescription medication/co-pays, hospital deductibles/co-pays, doctor’s co-pays, COBRA payments and insurance premiums.
In the event that a TFP client passes away, all money remaining will be transferred into an unmatched account. The person authorized to request withdrawals, as indicated on the TFP Client Agreement, may submit a request for eligible medical expenses for a period of three (3) months after a client’s death.
The GTF Advisory Council may disburse up to a maximum of $5,000 towards funeral expenses paid directly to the funeral home. This disbursement is based on funds available in the client’s account and it is not matched by GTF.
Based on review of need, GTF will consider paying mortgage or rent for the client’s primary residence on file with GTF for one (1) month after the death of a client. This request must be in writing and proof of financial need must be demonstrated. This is not matched by GTF.
Should there be any funds remaining in your account following the above disbursements, the Advisory Council will authorize the transfer of funds to support the Georgia Transplant Foundation. These funds shall remain the property of the Georgia Transplant Foundation.
Funds disbursed under these guidelines are taken from the balance of your TFP account and are not eligible for GTF match. The above items are only payable to the extent there are funds in your TFP account.
