Re: organ transplant

Generally, not many insurers cover organ donor expense.

Re: organ transplant

Check with his insurance company but I doubt it will cover this expense

Yes there are policies which a few companies offer to cover In-patient Hospitalization Medical Expenses of the donor for harvesting the organ. The expenses covered are up to the limit of the Sum Insured, provided that:
1. The organ donor is any person in accordance with the Transplantation of Human Organs Act
1994 (amended) and any other applicable rules, regulations and laws
2. The organ donated is for the use of the Insured Person who has been asked to undergo an organ transplant on Medical Advice
