Cord Blood Collection

You may opt to have Cord Blood collected at your delivery.  There are many companies that offer this service. Their advertisements appear in various parenting magazine or you can search for them online.  Our office does not choose one over another. 

There is a $150.00 charge for the doctor to collect the cord blood the time of your delivery.  This fee must be paid prior to delivery.  There will be an additional fee for the cord blood kit and the storage which will be payable directly to the company you select.

As soon as you know that you will be having a Cord Blood collection, please advise our OB Coordinator, Kristina.  You can reach her by calling (215)340-2229 ext. 120 or you can come see her when you are at the office at your next doctor visit.

It is your responsibility to select the Cord Blood Collection company, call them to receive a kit and, most importantly, bring the kit with you to the hospital.

We do not submit the collection of the cord blood to insurance companies.  It is your responsibility to call your insurance company to see if this is a covered service, and if so, to submit your receipt to them for reimbursement.
