Patient Care Trust

When an Alcor member is cryopreserved, a significant portion of the member’s funding is placed into the Alcor Patient Care Trust, which pays for storage costs, and transfers investment funds into the legally separate Alcor Care Trust Supporting Organization, which provides protection against liability.

This conservative funding arrangement is designed to cover the cost of patient storage solely from the income from the Trusts, thereby assuring that such funding will continue indefinitely into the future. This arrangement is one of many reasons our members have confidence in Alcor.

For whole body cryopreservation, $115,000 of the member’s funding goes into the Trusts. Neuro cryopreservation reduces storage costs significantly, so $25,000 of the member’s funding goes into the Trusts. These amounts typically come from the member’s life insurance policy.
