A recently published study estimated that a $9,648 incentive per living donor would increase the number of kidneys available for transplant by 5%. In an accompanying editorial, Peter Reese suggested that it is time to conduct a study which would look into a limited trial of offering incentives for organ donation. He also commented that financial incentives that are legal and less controversial than direct payment should also be explored.
