In brief: Recipient

The recipient of the organ transplant pays the cost of donation.
This is most relevant in living donor transplants. For decreased donor organ donation the family is not charged for thee surgery or any lab tests or other procedures related to the donation. They will however be billed for medical care given prior to brain death and consent for organ donation.
