  • How does one become a member of Medic Regional Blood Center?

    It’s easy: those who have donated blood within the last year are automatically Medic members.

    Being a member of Medic protects both donors and their IRS dependents. One blood donation a year exempts donors and their IRS dependents from paying blood-collection or blood-processing fees anywhere in the U.S. if a transfusion is needed.

    This benefit can save a family thousands of dollars.
