Transplant Center of Excellence (COE)

We support our Transplant Center of Excellence (COE) program partners and their patients (our members) by providing resources and patient decision support information in several ways:

COE Provider Resources and program network:

Read important notices for transplant programs as well as provider administrative and medical policy. This page also provides links to both Regional and National transplant programs that are participating in our Center of Excellence program.

Patient Support Resources:

Find links to our Health Information Library, national support resource links and outcome data that is available nationally for both solid organ and blood and marrow transplant programs in the US.

Associated specialty providers are required to submit a completed Specialty Physician referral request form prior to referring their patients to a transplant program for consultation.

The goal for transplant referral prior authorization is to provide comprehensive Transplant Case Management care and benefit coordination throughout your patient’s/our member’s transplant journey.

Transplant Care Management

HealthPartners health plan case and disease management has a dedicated transplant coordination team that offers personalized support for members that are potential or deemed transplant candidates.
