Can I be listed at more than one transplant center?

In brief: Yes
You can join the wait list of more than one transplant center. However, only one center will be primary and receive shared organs (called zero mismatch) around the country.
In addition, only one center carries your maximum waiting time.

In brief: Yes
You can be listed at as many centers as you want.
You may have some issues with insurance so you will have to contact your insurance company. Also look at the regions the centers are in. Being listed at multiple centers in the same organ allocation region will not increase your chances at transplant because of how listing works. You are better served to be listed at centers in different regions.

And look at waiting times and outcomes for each center to help you choose (www.ustransplant.org).
