Utah Admin. Code R414-58-5 - Awarding Financial Assistance to Eligible Recipients

Current through Bulletin 2022-07, April 1, 2022

(1) Prior to awarding financial assistance the committee shall review the recipient's request for assistance to determine:
(a) the needs of the eligible recipient both physically and financially; and
(b) the existence of other financial assistance including availability of insurance or other state aid.
(2) Each eligible recipient must apply for applicable Medicaid, Medicaid disability, and Children's Health Insurance Program assistance before the committee agrees to award any financial assistance. This does not preclude the committee from using funds to negotiate with transplant centers or hospitals to place the name of the eligible recipient on a waiting list for an organ transplant.
(3) As part of the review process a legal guardian of the eligible recipient must sign a release to allow all medical records of the child to be released to the Department of Health. The Department of Health shall provide assistance to the committee by determining:
(a) that the proposed organ transplant is not experimental; and
(b) the extent of the threat to the child's life without the organ transplant.
(4) In addition, the committee must consider the availability of funds in the Children's Organ Transplant trust account before awarding financial assistance.
