One donation per year exempts the donor and his/her IRS dependents from paying blood supplier processing fees anywhere in the United States. (This does not include procedure fees pre-existing conditions.) For every subsequent donation, a year is added to the membership.
As donors can acquire multiple credits in one year from multiple donations, donors can use those credits to provide coverage to someone else. Donors notify MEDIC of the name, address, and date of birth of the person they want to give their credit to within 30 days of donating and that person will receive one year of individual coverage. Credits cannot be transferred after 30 days.
Friends and family of someone who has used blood within the past year can hold replacement drive. This gives donors the option of making a replacement donation which helps offset the cost of blood for the patient. This can greatly reduce hospital expenses and give families financial assistance during treatment.
