IVF Costs & Shared Success
Navigating IVF costs
Medical expertise and clinical success rates, reputation and location are important criteria in choosing an infertility clinic. Naturally costs are also a major factor. While infertility diagnosis and some treatments may be covered by insurance, most assisted reproductive technologies, including IVF, are generally not covered by insurance.
IVF costs include medications, testing, lab work, and consultations, ultrasounds, blood tests and medical expenses associated with IVF.. In 2014, the estimated average cost of one “fresh” IVF cycle was about $12,000.
The need for additional IVF cycles is determined by a patient’s age, the severity of infertility and the quality of the embryo and semen.
If, because of genetic conditions, you are considering pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) of the embryo, this process may cost an additional $3-6,000. So for each attempt to have a healthy child the cost is significant.
When a fresh cycle does not result in pregnancy, remaining embryos can be frozen. Frozen embryo transfer may cost $3-6,000 per cycle plus annual storage fees.
Other costs that may or may not be covered by our IVF success programs include pre-screening procedures, semen analysis, monitoring costs, anesthesia, assisted hatching, ICSI, blastocyst culture, and cryopreservation.
