The costs will vary for each patient, based on insurance coverage, the type of transplant and the location of the transplant center. Patients will also incur lifetime medical expenses for follow-up care and prescriptions.

Below is a list of average costs for transplants and first-year expenses. The actual costs may be higher or lower than the figures listed here:
• Bone Marrow (autologous): $360,000
• Bone Marrow (allogeneic): $800,000
