Lung Transplant Referral Process

Pre-Transplant Screening for Initial Consultation

Most insurance companies require that a patient’s primary or pulmonary physician refer a patient to a lung transplant program. You or your physician can print and fax our referral form to the lung transplant office. If you, as a patient, have a question about referrals or the transplant program, you can e-mail us at

Insurance information

It is the responsibility of you and your referring doctor to have insurance approval in place for your screening appointment. As records are received, they are sent for benefits verification to ensure your insurance company will provide coverage for the pre-transplant screening. (Many insurance companies will only provide coverage at specified centers.)
