When is National Transplant Financial Coordinator Day? This day will take place April 10 of each calendar year.
What is National Transplant Financial Coordinator Day? The Transplant Financial Coordinator Association (TFCA) agreement of association was made on April 10th, 2001. The mission of the Transplant Financial Coordinators Association, a nonprofit professional organization, is to coordinate the dissemination of useful information related to Transplant Finance. Our goal is to ensure we provide accurate financial information to our patients and their families in a compassionate and tactful manner, while maximizing reimbursement for our transplant centers.
Why is this day being celebrated or observed? We celebrate it because it’s a sometimes overlooked profession, but it’s so important to people going through the organ transplant process.
How should this day be celebrated or observed? We would observe the day individually within our programs across the country.
Who created this day? National Transplant Financial Coordinator Day was created in November 2020 by the TFCA board of directors: Deidra Simano, President; Sina Thimas, Vice President; Sharon Walls, Secretary; Kara Hovatter, Treasurer; Trustees: Lisa Donovan, Lisa McDermott, Kimberly Provencher, and Betsy Jones
