Implementation of kidney and pancreas policies
Updated Mar. 15, 2021:
Broader kidney and pancreas distribution policies now in effect. Learn more.

On Dec. 14, 2020, the changes to allocation that were scheduled to be implemented on Dec. 15 were postponed at the direction of the Health Resources and Services Administration. Read more about the action here.

On Jan. 4, 2021, the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network provided HRSA information for their consideration as they reviewed two critical comments.

HRSA has responded to the critical comments. At this time, the expected date for implementation of the policies, absent Court intervention, is March 14, 2021.

Organ procurement organizations and kidney and pancreas transplant programs should continue to follow the match run generated in UNetSM for donors and potential recipients of these organs.
