The financial costs of kidney donation

Costs covered by RAMQ, Quebec’s health insurance plan:

  • All examinations
  • Blood tests
  • Hospitalization
  • Surgery

In some cases, the employer’s group insurance plan covers some of the costs not covered by RAMQ, such as potential loss of salary. Ask your employer what you are covered for.

Quebec’s Reimbursement Program for Living Donors (RPLD) also compensates donors for a portion of expenses linked to the donation process.
