At-a-glance statement

A new waiting time modification form has been posted in UNetsm for transplant programs to use to request modifications of kidney waiting time for any non-dialysis candidates who were unable to be registered due to the COVID-19 public health emergency.

 What you need to know

The OPTN Executive Committee approved a process to adjust kidney waiting time for these candidates on April 3, 2020. More detail is included in the policy notice on the OPTN website. Transplant center staff may access the new form by navigating to the Waitlistsm, selecting Resources on the top menu, then Forms/Tools on the left-hand menu. Documentation requirements and submission instructions are included within the form.
