Our basic suspension ("Standard Procedure") plan is priced to match the most economical plans available through any other reputable company. 

The "California Procedure" makes use of a team of specialist relying upon recent research results.  It is considerably more expensive than the Standard Procedure, but is the most technologically sophisticated suspension available anywhere. 

Both of these procedures advance research and contribute to achieving our goals.

In order for the American Cryonics Society to perform a cryonic suspension for you, we need you to do three things:

    1. Provide the funds for your own suspension and long-term maintenance.

    2. Become a member of the American Cryonics Society and pay dues.

    3. Provide ACS with the legal authority to perform a suspension by completing the proper forms.

Here are the prices for each of these services.  Be sure and read the Notes and Descriptions for each of these procedures.
