Praise those few individuals who are brave enough or desperate enough to undergo heart transplant surgery. Bless the health insurance provider in conjunction with the medical physician for saving another soul. Heart transplants are from most in the medical community to be very dangerous. There are many stringent health care guidelines that go with this type of surgery, but it is necessary. The most important factor is the overall health care status of the patient who is receiving the heart transplant.

As if many other transplants that occur you must stop and ask yourself what happened to the donor. What do you do when you would rather find another way other than a heart transplant or any other type of transplant? It is very understandable how life saving this is, but someone else must take your place in meeting his or her maker so you can have the opportunity to live.

Within the health insurance community and the health care community, they see all kinds of transplants as life saving and as gift giving, but has anyone ever asked the recipient if this is what they wanted? Many times the medical health care community is so wrapped up with performing another transplant surgery that they neglect to talk with the patient who is receiving the transplant.

1.    The age, health and significance of the heart transplant surgery

2.    Is the average amount of about eight hundred thousand dollars a significant expenditure and an affordable one for the health insurance provider

3.    How long is the long-term time frame or is this forever

4.    The totality of the health care effects on the individual and the impacted community

5.    The health care considerations the health insurance provider, the medical health care provider and the individual must conclude

There are many today that receive medical procedures in the form of transplants and this is in a sense divided up between the health insurance provider, the medical health care provider, and the individual who is to receive the transplant. However, it really is the age and overall health statistics of the individual that determines if he or she is even eligible for the heart transplant.

After the surgery, there are multitudes of medications the individual must be on to keep the transplanted heart from being rejected from the individual’s body. Is this the full life the individual wanted? Or was this a matter of another successful surgery performed through the medical health care physician.
