Type O+ Blood is in IMMEDIATE need for patient care in our local hospitals. Find a location to donate here.
Donors selecting the Blood Assurance option receive unlimited blood coverage for each beneficiary, determined by the donor and chosen as follows:
Follow the instructions to fill out the Blood Assurance Claim Form. Payment will not be rendered until claim form is received and hospital verification of components used is complete. Compensation will be made directly to the patient.
The Blood Replacement program was established to support patients who are not already covered under the Blood Assurance program and to support patients with pre-existing illnesses.
For each pint of blood donated as a replacement for a specific patient, The Blood Center will issue $10 directly to the patient.
For every platelet apheresis donation designated as a replacement unit for a specific patient, The Blood Center will issue $30 directly to the patient.
Friends and family may make replacement donations at any one of our donor centers or blood drives. Make sure that they choose "Replacement" at time of donation. We would also be happy to help you set up a replacement blood drive.
