HCT Cost and Coverage
HCT Cost Information
When a patient requires a transplant from an unrelated donor, a physician can request a free preliminary search of our Be The Match Registry to determine if there are potential matches.
To verify that potential donors or cord blood units match the patient, transplant center physicians can initiate a formal search to request further testing. A formal search includes a one-time activation fee plus additional costs for outreach and lab tests of potential donors and/or cord blood units. Learn more about unrelated donor search costs here.
When a patient requires a transplant from an unrelated donor, the physician will choose either umbilical cord blood or marrow or peripheral (circulating) blood cells (also called PBSC) from an adult donor based on a variety of factors, including the patient’s age and severity of disease.
