How much does IVF cost?
This is a question we are asked frequently. For the short answer, you can jump to the bottom of the page. The full answer is that insurance coverage varies so much from person to person, even among those on the same plan. We've laid out the prices of different IVF packages if you were to pay for it with no insurance coverage. In addition to the IVF cycle, there may be medications and tests that insurance does or does not cover. We will help you find out.
Insurance Coverage for IVF
Insurance coverage for In Vitro Fertilization varies depending upon the individual insurance carrier. Most insurances do not cover In Vitro Fertilization procedures. For patients without insurance coverage, we offer different packages in an attempt to make the procedure as affordable as possible.
|FEES FOR IVF CYCLES|
|Package 1||First Cycle
|Package 2||Two Cycles
This fee covers one IVF cycle and includes oocyte retrieval, embryo transfer, ICSI and assisted hatching. Also included is embryo cryopreservation with storage (one year) and one frozen embryo transfer within one calendar year. Ultrasound scans, blood tests and medication costs are not included and are the responsibility of the patient.
IVF Package 2
This fee covers two IVF cycles within one year. The fee includes oocyte retrieval, embryo transfer, ICSI and assisted hatching. Also included is embryo cryopreservation with storage (one year) and one frozen embryo transfer within one calendar year. Ultrasound scans, blood tests and medication costs are not included and are the responsibility of the patient. If cryopreserved embryos were created with the first IVF cycle, these must be used prior to proceeding with a second IVF cycle.
Please note that this package is considered completed, if a pregnancy with delivery occurs prior to the second cycle.
By prepaying for two IVF cycles, there is a significant discount if two cycles of IVF are needed.
The IVF is paid in advance by personal check or credit card. All previous balances for infertility, IVF or FET must be paid before starting an IVF cycle.
In some cases, ultrasound monitoring and laboratory testing may be covered by insurance. If there is insurance coverage for cycle monitoring or IVF, insurance will be billed and the patient is responsible for any copays, coinsurance, deductibles, etc.
Payment plans are available for the IVF cycle fee. The deposit is billed to the patient’s credit card before starting the cycle with the balance billed to that credit card over twelve months.
