Which plan is right for me?
Cell Care offer the widest range of payment plans to suit your individual needs.
The first thing to decide is whether to store cord blood and tissue, or only cord blood. Please note that you may not elect to store cord tissue alone. Once you have made this decision, you then select a payment plan that best suits your circumstances. Cell Care offers two basic plan types – Prepaid Storage Plans and Annual Storage Plans.
Prepaid Storage Plans
Prepaid Storage Plans combine fees associated with the collection kit, transport, processing, testing and storage of the cord blood and tissue. You choose whether to prepay storage for 18 or 25 years.
With a Prepaid Storage plan, there is a deposit payable at enrolment with the balance payable either in a lump sum two weeks after birth or by either a 12 or 24 monthly payment schedule. Payments start from $148 per month for a 24 month period for 18 years of cord blood storage.
Annual Cell Care Storage Plans
With Annual Storage Plans, you pay a processing fee for the collection kit, transport, processing and testing of the cord blood and tissue collected. This fee comprises of a deposit paid at enrolment, with the balance payable in a lump sum two weeks after birth or over a 12 month payment schedule. An annual storage fee is then paid for as long as you wish to continue storing and without fixed time commitment. The annual fee, adjusted for CPI, covers one year of cryogenic storage. The first payment is payable three months after birth, and thereafter payable annually.
Annual Storage Plans are ideal for those who wish to minimise their initial financial commitment. Annual Storage plans may be switched to a Prepaid Storage Plan at a later stage if requested.
