The Living Donor Protection Act of 2023 (H.R. 2923 and S. 1384) would protect living donors from discrimination by life insurance, disability insurance, and long-term care insurance providers. It would also ensure that living organ donors have Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) protections so they can take time off work to donate an organ and recover from surgery without fear of losing their job. If passed, this federal legislation would ensure every state has a basic level of protection — so that where a person lives does not make it more difficult to be a living donor.
Please contact your U.S. Representative and U.S. Senators to ask them to cosponsor the Living Donor Protection Act that will ensure that individuals who give the gift of life are protected from discrimination and are encouraged to help those in desperate need.
