The lifetime limit on transplants shall apply from one day prior to the date of the transplant or the date of hospital admission, for a patient who receives a transplant during the course of a longer hospital stay, through one hundred days after the transplant. Donor-related services may apply to the lifetime limit on transplants any time. The major medical lifetime limit shall apply to health care services provided before and after this time period. Benefits provided are subject to all other terms and conditions of the health benefit plan, including but not limited to any applicable coinsurances, deductibles, and copayments.
