Introduction

Pregnancy can be expensive, and those costs only go up when you need additional fertility treatments. It can be daunting to face the potential price-tag of these treatments, and for many families these concerns may cause them to delay their plans to get pregnant even further.

At Laurel Fertility Care, we believe finances should never get in the way of building your dream family.

We have various options that make realizing your dream of starting a family possible. We believe a patient should only get the treatment that fits them, and for that reason we have structured our pricing in the form of a la carte services. If you only need a cycle of Mini IVF, that’s all we will prescribe. If you and your partner need to undergo multiple IVF procedures with a semen analysis and clomid, we will give you an honest assessment of those treatments and the cost. You will never pay extra for services you don’t need. After meeting with one of our physicians, we can custom engineer a program especially for you and your family.

“Okay, we want to start a family but it’s expensive. How do we pay for it?"

This is a common question we get asked by many patients and many are surprised to learn there are options to help pay for treatment. We are happy to offer a number of options to fit your family situation. Our patient financing services for all fertility treatment options have competitive rates, and our Finance Specialist will guide you through the process of selecting the right financing package for you. These programs are designed to eliminate the obstacles to achieving your dream of having a family, through easily affordable loan programs.

While we will work with you choose the best treatments that fit within your budget, we also have several resources you may be able to use to make your fertility treatments more affordable. Below we’ve outlined available options that make realizing your dream of starting a family possible, including: Contracted Insurance, Financial Alternatives, and Suggested Pharmacies.

Contracted Insurance and Fertility Treatment costs Bay Area with Egg Freezing and IVF Procedures

Contracted Insurance

Insurance only covers some infertility benefits but not all that is needed. We have partnered with several programs that provide financing options for treatment. These programs are designed to meet your family’s needs while reducing the financial stress of treatment.

At Laurel Fertility Care, our clinical and patient service teams are focused on your success. We develop every treatment plan specifically for each patient, keeping our goal of pregnancy the priority, while also keeping financial concerns in mind. Still, we understand the financial constraints associated with fertility treatments.

For some, health insurance will help offset some of the costs related to their treatment. Very few patients are restricted in their choice of a fertility specialist by their insurance. You may not be aware that infertility benefits may vary from patient to patient and from provider to provider. Here are a few key points about insurance coverage by major plans to help you manage expectations of coverage. The information provided is for informational purposes only and is not a commitment of coverage.

Pre-Determination/Pre-Approval:

Vitrification Egg Freezing an dFertility Treatment Costs Bay Area
  • Approximately 4-7 business days from submission of your paperwork by your referring physician.
  • Predetermination letter may require 30-days.

Before authorization is issued, most plans require:

  • Clinical history including physician notes
  • Blood work, Day-3 FSH, Estradiol
  • Semen analysis
  • X-Ray - saline sonogram or HSG reports.

After the initial consultation, your insurance company may require a new authorization if your treatment plan has changed - for example changing approval for intrauterine implantation to in vitro fertilization or vice versa.

Plans may require patients meet “lesser before greater” treatment criteria for medications, even if procedures have already been approved.

Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis or preimplantation genetic screening may be considered experimental procedures by your insurance company and thus may not be a covered benefit, unless for a specific disease. Therefore, you are responsible for confirming coverage for PGD or PGS. Since insurance benefits vary by employer, it is imperative to take an active role in understanding your benefits as well as any potential out of pocket obligations that you may have before beginning treatment.

We encourage you to call your insurance provider or company benefits manager to check the level of fertility benefits you may have. For patients without coverage, we will work hard to provide solutions to make fertility care accessible.

Our dedicated financial coordinators can help to answer the many questions about costs and insurance coverage. We can help you navigate the complexities and provide some basic guidelines of the financial process. Some plans require additional referrals or authorizations so we recommend that you check your infertility benefits under your specific plan early in the process.

Although we can find out some aspects of your benefits, your insurance company can provide more complete information about your coverage directly to you. Our financial coordinators will then work with you and create a financial plan based on your coverage.
