Accreditation: Tells you whether or not the bank is accredited by one or both of the industry standard accrediting agencies (AABB and FACT). The California Biologics License (CB) is equivalent to AABB for banks located in the state of California. Read more about cord blood banking accreditation.
Total 1st Year Costs: This is the total cost that parents will incur for the first year of cord blood banking (enrollment/admin fees, collection and processing fees, shipping, and 1st year storage). In some instances, companies have chosen to not include shipping in their pricing and leave the shipping decision up to the customer. In these cases, since shipping can vary, we have written “+Shipping”. Although hard to estimate since it will largely depend upon where you live and where you are sending the cord blood too, we have seen shipping range from $40 – $150. Review our article on cord blood banking costs for more details.
Annual Storage Fee: This is the recurring cost you will pay each year for storing the cord blood.
