BloodBook.com provides on this page, as a service to our visitors, Medicare information pertaining to Blood transfusion and some other limited Blood services. It is estimated that Medicare and Medicaid pay for 50-60% of all transfusions; therefore it is certain that this is an important topic. We would like to make this a more comprehensive presentation, however, the Medicare rulings change often. These changes affect the reimbursement schedules and differ substantially by state, county, date, eligibility and qualification requirements.

You may be required to read and sign an Advance Beneficiary Notice. We have a detailed explanation of the Advance Beneficiary Notice (ABN) HERE as well as several examples of typical ABN forms.

Before you commit to anything, be certain, as always, to check with Medicare at the numbers that we have provided below.


Blood transfusion and some other limited Blood services may be covered under both Medicare Part A and Medicare Part B scheduled benefits.

Medicare Part A covers Blood and Blood services received by a qualifying recipient, during their stay or while receiving services from hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, and/or other institutional providers of service.

Medicare Part B covers Blood and Blood services received by a qualifying recipient, rendered by physicians, laboratories, and/or suppliers, as an outpatient or part of a Medicare Part B covered service.

When Does Medicare Pay for Blood?

Medicare Part A and Part B will pay for the cost of Blood, on an annual basis, after the first three units have been administered.

When Does Medicare Not Pay for Blood?

Medicare will not pay for the first three units.

What Does Medicare Pay?

Under Part A, you pay the cost of the first three units of Blood.

Under Part B, you pay the cost of the first three units plus 20% of the approved amount for additional units.
