Expenses related to liver transplant

Please Consult with your Doctor/Hospital regarding total Expenses related to Liver Transplant.
(Below is rough estimate)

Apart from the main expense related to transplant itself there are expenses related to evaluation of the recipient and the donor prior to liver transplant, pre-transplant therapy for diabetes, nutritional deficiency or heart disease. The cost of liver transplant can vary from patient to patient depending on the cause of disease, health of the patient and where it is carried out (not the cost of standard transplant pacakage) . Liver Transplant at center in New Delhi is available at a fraction of the cost at any western transplant center without any compromise in the quality of care provided. If the patient has hepatitis-B or C infection then the cost of immunoprophylaxis for hepatitis - B is very expensive and for hepatitis C antiviral therapy can also prove to be expensive. Depending on the regimen used the therapy for hepatitis B can cost 1000 to 2000 USD (30,000 to 1,00,000Rs) per month, apart from the first month's expense for HBIg of 20 - 30,000 USD (7- 15 lakh Rs) as well as expenses for other medications. A six months course of antiviral therapy for hepatitis C will cost 3000 to 6000 USD (1.5 to 3 lakh Rs). The monthly expenses for other maintenance medications could cost around 20,000 Rs (500 USD). The expenses that often goes unmentioned include rare need for imported medications to fight resistant rejection or viral infections such as CMV or chicken pox and the cost of lab tests and lodging.
