    Are they saying that only people in one-man/one woman marriages are deserving of transplants?

    If they're concerned about HIV or HCV then they should just test you but that does not qualify as a condition to deny a transplant.

    Weird, weird.  Was this something that the local transplant board came up with?

      People in monogamous gay relationships are accorded the same status as people in monogamous straight ones, of that I'm sure. Married or unmarried doesn't matter; I'm sure of that, too. Maybe they ask the monogamy stuff of everybody or maybe they asked me more because I am bi and because I said, honestly, that we are and have been monogamous "at this time". We considered and decided against polyamory for ourselves but always have left the door open in case we both decide differently in the future, and I try not to tell lies.

      they were looking for an excuse to deny the transplant.  This was obviously an insurance company before Obamacare.  Since they can no longer deny coverage for pre-existing conditions after Jan 1st 2014, maybe it will get better.
