Here is a a story apropos of I am not sure what. I work for an HMO and had a patient in need of a liver transplant for reasons ostensibly not his own doing.

We had him listed with our local University who does all this work in our area. He fell out of their program when he tested positive for marijuana at a periodic visit, (at their clinic, not mine). Expected behavior and exclusion criteria were of course made known to him.

He then went to a private program in the midwest where for 250k he went right to the front of the line and had a very successful transplant.

I have no problem with people getting what they pay for, but I wonder how the organ donors would feel about this?
