In brief: A lot

A liver transplant costs well into multiple of six figures.
The biggest cost is associated not with the actual transplant event, but with the requisite immunosuppressive meds afterwards. Yes, medicaid will pay for liver transplant, but not all liver transplant programs accept medicaid these days due to the increasingly poor reimbursement rates that often don't even cover the cost incurred.

In brief: Expensive

Liver transplantation is expensive.
You need to specifically address the cost with your local liver transplant program. Each program has a social worker and a billing specialist that can go over your specific circumstances.

In brief: Medicaid covers

You can not put exact dollar value , runs in thousands of dollars ( as the process costs ) it varies location to location depending on their overhead expenses etc, even-though the donor gave it free and most of the time medicaid covers the expenses.
