129 Can you give me a range of cost for a liver transplant? (in the U.S.)

Answer:
The approximate range is $75,000 to $250,000. This is a broad range because
some patients will need prolonged hospitilization after a liver transplant,
while others are home in a week. The cost for an individual patient is
impossible to predict with any certainty.
