GUIDE TO COSTS

Fee components

The fees cover all included services and supplies for CryoPath’s full process, terminating in delivery to the cryonic storage facility. The cost of these items will vary according to the pricing schedules of individual suppliers and service providers, and according to current schedules at the time of service. Therefore the estimates shown below should be viewed only as a guide.

Note that:

  • ‘Overseas’ costs apply if the patient is to be delivered from Australia to a USA facility.
  • ‘Local’ costs apply if the patient is to be delivered within Australia to the proposed Southern Cryonics facility.

Payment

Payment for the component costs will typically be made by the patient’s representatives to the actual service provider(s). Pre-payment must be arranged through one of the following options:

  • Funeral insurance
  • Funeral fund
  • Credit card
  • Cash
  • Other acceptable to funeral director
  • Through Alcor or Cryonics Institute by special arrangement.

Estimates

Note that these estimates apply for a patient in Sydney. For other capital cities, there will be additional costs.
