Two hospitals already determined she was too sick for the transplant because of a virus.

Sophia McVay’s mother says the infant no longer has the virus, which Medicaid claims it learned only after CBS 11 reached out about the story.

A spokesperson now says Medicaid will pay for Sophia’s transplant evaluation.  The family is still waiting to get that in writing.

The family has set up a donation page to help pay for Sophia’s medical bills.  Click here to donate.
