Your health plan covers the cost of administering transfusions and pays blood processing fees for employees, retirees and eligible family members. It does not pay for the storage of your own blood for future use.
Blood replacement fees are not covered by any health plan offered by the City. To help our community maintain blood reserves the Employee Blood Program sponsors a voluntary donor program for City employees, called the City Donor Corps. City Donor Corps members who donate once a year are entitled to certain benefits for themselves and family members. For further information, see your agency Blood Program Coordinator. If you are retired, call or write to the central office:
NYC Employee Blood Program
Department of Citywide Administrative Services
1 Centre Street, 21st Floor
