Expense Reimbursement Terms and Conditions


Your ExCESS breastmilk helps critically ill Infants and Susan G. Komen®, and in return, Prolacta can help you by PROVIDING a one-time reimbursement of $300 for your expenses!

Your breastmilk donation has always helped critically ill infants receive the nutrition they need, but now with 300 qualified ounces of breastmilk donated you are eligible for a one-time expense reimbursement check of $300. Additionally, Prolacta Bioscience® will donate to Susan G. Komen® $1 for every ounce of qualified breastmilk collected through Helping Hands Milk Bank with a guaranteed minimum donation of $25,000 per year.

To be eligible, you must ship a minimum of 300 qualified ounces within your initial 180-day qualification. Multiple shipments are acceptable. Applications can be accepted beginning 4 weeks after you have delivered your baby. You can be eligible for only one reimbursement for donations made through Helping Hands Milk Bank.

If you are a previous donor and have delivered a new baby, you may be eligible for another reimbursement. Simply complete the re-qualification process and ship a minimum of 300 qualified ounces within your new qualification period.

You will receive your check 4 to 6 weeks after the end of the month in which you qualified for the payment.

Breastmilk volume will be determined by Prolacta. Prolacta will weigh the breastmilk at the time and in the condition that it is received at Prolacta’s facility using a calibrated scale. Calculated breastmilk volume will be based on measured weight, excluding any packaging materials and using Prolacta’s standard operating procedures. You can see a video of the process here.

Qualified breastmilk is donated breastmilk that has met all the qualification guidelines. This includes two main phases: your qualification and qualification of the breastmilk you donate. Your qualification includes medical history screening, freezer qualification, DNA profile creation, and viral blood screening. After the donor qualification is completed, you may send breastmilk to the milk bank. Once the breastmilk is received at Prolacta, it must undergo and pass several rigorous testing procedures including but not limited to bacterial screening, drug screening, and DNA matching. Upon successful completion of these screening procedures, the breastmilk is considered qualified for use in making 100% human milk–based nutritional products for use in hospitals.
