The Model for End-Stage Liver Disease (MELD) is a calculated formula used to assign priority to most liver transplant candidates age 12 and older based upon their medical urgency.
Some updates were made effective July 13, 2023, to data used in the MELD calculation formula. These updates were part of an initiative to better predict the risk of waitlist mortality for liver transplant candidates.
A date is required for the field labeled, "Date added to the Waitlist." If the candidate is not currently listed for a transplant, enter today's date.
