Why are Americord’s cord blood banking prices more expensive?

Posted by Martin Smithmyer

Americord offers cord blood banking starting at $2,999. This price includes the cord blood kit, collection, processing, 20 years of storage, transport back to our laboratory via an expedited medial courier, and no surprise charges. When broken down the price for Americord may look higher, but in actuality we are about half of the price of most of our competitors. By charging everything up front we are able to pass along those savings to our clients. We don’t sacrifice quality however, our lab is FDA registered, accredited with the AABB and licensed and registered across U.S. and follows the best practices for cord blood banking. Our Medical Director, Dr. Robert Dracker, was Executive Medical Director at ViaCord from the beginning and is considered one of the founders of the industry, and also wrote the guidelines for cord blood banking for New York State, and also sits on the FDA pediatrics advisory panel.

Americord has the best quality and follows all of the best practices for cord blood collection and storage, including the FDA, the AABB, state and federal guidelines and applicable licenses. We use the only commercially available FDA approved sterile exterior cord blood bag that is on the market, the fastest medical courier, and the cheapest prices.
