Marrow transplantation, indicated for the treatment of leukemia by donation, will be covered by the reference packages of health plans.

For the Brazilian Association of Hematology, the measure to include bone marrow transplantation in health plans in Brazil will not have as great an impact on behalf of operators.

According to the president, Carmine Antonio de Souza, the procedure is expensive, but it is not so common. "Transplantation varies up to $ 80,000 and we have around 150 per year covered by the plans. The rest continue to be made public skin, which will lead to the private area of ​​a small increase in tuition, I imagine that $ 1 to more, "he explains.
