The Living Donor Protection Act (H.R. 1270) will prohibit insurance companies from denying or limiting life, disability and long term care insurance to living donors and from charging higher premiums. The bill also clarifies that living organ donors may use time granted through the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) to recover from donation.
During March 2017, the Living Donor Protection Act (H.R. 1270) was introduced in the House of Representatives by Representative Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) and Representative Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-WA).
