The decision to be an organ donor can save one life or many lives, depending on the type of organ donation and the health of the donor.
There are no medical expenses associated with being an organ donor of any type; insurance or the agency responsible for recovering the organs will pay for the costs of organ recovery. Living organ donors may have financial repercussions outside of medical expenses if they do not have sick time or disability pay during their recovery, but they are in no way charged to be a donor. In short, there are no costs to be an organ donor of any kind. All expenses are paid by the insurance company of the person you are donating to if you are a living donor, or by the organ procurement organization that recovers organs from a deceased donor.
