What happens when I enroll in Missouri's Organ and Tissue Donor Registry?

By enrolling in Missouri’s Organ and Tissue Donor Registry, you are giving legal consent for the recovery of your organs, eyes, and tissues for the purpose of transplantation, therapy, research, and/or education at the time of your death. Registry information is kept strictly confidential and can only be accessed by:
  1. Federally regulated organ procurement organizations, and 
  2. Missouri licensed tissue and eye banks.
Such access is limited and for the sole purpose of identifying potential organ and tissue donors at or near the time of death. The Department of Health and Senior Services employees or their representative have access to the Registry when required for the performance of their official duties as it relates to the Registry and the donation process.
