A health screening or prescreen appointment is the first step in the program.
This appointment is an in-person appointment with a Red Cross staff member who will ask a series of questions to determine if you meet the health requirements for participation. At your prescreen, samples of blood will be drawn for testing purposes. You will be compensated $50 for the prescreen appointment, which takes approximately 45 - 60 minutes.
If you qualify as an eligible candidate, your prescreen results will be valid for 90 days. If you are not contacted to give a collection within those 90 days, you may schedule another prescreen visit. You will be compensated $50 for each prescreen visit.
