Money Donation

Who pays for the stem cell or bone marrow donation?

The patient's insurance generally covers the cost of the donation procedure or related testing or doctor's appointments. There is no cost to the bone marrow donor to donate, nor is there a cost to sign up. DKMS covers any transportation costs that the donor might need to get to the transplant center.
