Cord Bank — The Bump

Cord Bank

Sort of an FYI or Keep Your Eyes Out for those of you with insurance through DoD...

Apparently, DoD is looking into what, if anything, would be covered should parents decide to bank their baby's cord blood.  I asked the Tricare rep about if the Drs fee would be covered by insurance when I have cord blood collected for a public bank donation.   The answer as of now is no, but she did inform me of their current examination into this policy.  Obviously, no decision for private banking either, but it's reassuring to know they are atleast looking into it.  Sounds like the DoD is trying to catch up with the times.

The rep said that if the change is made, it will be in the newletter and online.  Oh to hope!
