Which Cord Blood Storage Plan Is Best for You?

MiracleCord’s Annual storage plans are our most affordable plans, and our Lifetime storage plans offer the greatest long-term savings. The cost of our 20-Year storage plans falls in the middle of the other two plans and are the most popular. Deciding which storage plan is best for you is typically a matter of which plan best fits your budget.

With MiracleCord, if you start with an Annual or 20-Year plan, you can change to a longer-term storage plan at any time. We will give you credit for the initial cost of the plan that you started with (minus any finance charges, if you chose a payment plan for the initial fees) and apply it towards the cost of the long-term storage plan that you want to change to.

Also, with MiracleCord, if you are on a 20-Year or Lifetime storage plan and need to use all your child's stem cells prior to the end of the plan term, we will issue a refund to you on a pro rata basis for the unused years of storage.
