Having a baby is a wondrous and joyful time filled with happiness, excitement, and at times worry. New parents are especially concerned about the expense of raising a child. We understand that cost is often a prohibitive factor, especially in difficult economic climates, which is why we’ve invested heavily in making MiracleCord an affordable, industry-leading, and proven cord blood bank.
We offer advanced technology to provide you with the highest margin of stem cell recovery so you can enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing you’ve made a sound investment in the future health of your child.
Our commitment to safe and reliable service begins with providing expecting parents with the resources they need to make the right decision for their new baby and family. As you begin to research cord blood banking, and if this valuable service is right for you, you should first consider the benefits and cost of cord blood and cord tissue banking.
Does insurance cover cord blood banking?
Some insurance providers offer coverage for cord blood banking depending on the terms of your individual or group policy.
Insurance is more likely to cover cord blood banking if the stem cells will be part of an existing treatment plan, or for an imminently probable medical condition. The initial cost for families who wish to preserve their child’s cord blood as a safeguard for the future, might not be covered by insurance.
You should contact your insurance company for more information.
Cord blood banking benefits
If your insurance won’t cover the costs of cord blood banking, we understand that it may make you wonder if the benefits of cord blood stem cells are worth the cost, or if cord blood banking is right for your family.
Every year, about 200,000 parents in the U.S. choose to bank their newborn’s cord blood and here are just a few important reasons why:
Cord blood stem cells are effective in the treatment of more than 80 conditions and diseases including sickle-cell anemia, leukemia, lymphoma and many types of cancer. By banking your baby’s cord blood and cord blood tissue you ensure that you and your immediate family have access to viable and readily-available stem cells.
We stand behind our industry-leading TimeCritical® Processing and AXP® II Automated Processing system to ensure the viability of your baby’s umbilical cord stem cells. We back our service with a $100,000 quality guarantee. If your child’s cord blood stem cells are used in a stem cell transplant and fail to engraft, MiracleCord will pay up to $100,000 to procure an alternative source of stem cells.
Your investment in cord blood storage with MiracleCord goes far beyond the cost of collection and storage. You’re investing in peace of mind and what many refer to as “biological insurance”, should you, your child or your immediate family need to undergo a lifesaving stem cell transplant.

Receive special savings when having multiple births or additional children
A baby’s cord blood is an exact genetic match for that child and offers the best chance of survival should they need a stem cell transplant in the future. Ensuring each of your children have a readily available match is crucial to the success of future treatments.
Siblings are the most preferred source of stem cells for allogeneic transplants (using stem cells that come from someone else). Also, in some cases, siblings’ cord blood units may be combined maximizing the volume of cord blood available. Furthermore, there is approximately a 1-in-4 chance of parents being a match to each child’s cord blood or cord blood tissue, which increases the chance of a stem cell match being available for parents in need of a stem cell transplant.
We offer special savings for families having multiple births (twins, triplets, etc.), as well as discounts for returning customers. Call us at 888-743-2673 for a custom discount and quote.
