    Ultimately, it's the DOCTOR who will decide.  A physician is perfectly within his rights to perform (pro bono) a heart transplant, as long as he/she's qualified to do so.

    The real issue here is that it costs a lot of money, and few doctors will want to incur the cost without getting compensated.

    This is ultimately a matter of physicians needing to step up and take responsibility.  They shouldn't have to worry about "not making a living" if they provide a high standard of care.  That's one of the things that a gov't plan should do - create a safety net for providers so that they can put patients first.
