National Liver Review Board Policy: New Processes
December 13, 2018 from 03:00pm to 04:00pm EST
In June 2017, the OPTN Board of Directors approved policy establishing a National Liver Review Board (NLRB). In December 2018, the Board will be voting on revisions to remove donation service area (DSA) and region from the NLRB policy in order to satisfy requirements of the OPTN Final Rule. If that is approved, this offering will outline the new review board structure and explains what members need to know about submitting MELD/PELD exception requests, the appeals process, and how existing exceptions and unresolved forms will be transitioned.
