This 2014 report summarizes estimated U.S. average costs per member per month, billed charges, and utilization related to transplant admission for treatment for organ and tissue transplants. There are some new developments to report since 2011 when the last report was released. Since that time, there have been annual increases in per member per month costs for certain types of transplants. Survival rates have generally shown mixed improvement and decline by transplant. However, hospital lengths of stay for most transplants have not changed much since the 2011 report.
