Cost Factors for IVF
IVF costs can be difficult to generalize since each treatment is unique to the reproductive needs of the individual patient. On average, one cycle of IVF treatment can run $7,000 to $14,000. These fees typically cover the costs of the IVF procedure (retrieving eggs, inseminating eggs, and placing them into the uterus), as well as lab work, ultrasounds, embryo storage, and anesthesia.
The total treatment cost varies depending on several factors, including:
- Medication: The amount and types of medication required throughout IVF treatment will vary from patient to patient. Medications are used to stimulate egg production, follicle growth, and other aspects of reproduction.
- Testing: Patients who undergo IVF will need to have fertility, genetic, and other forms of testing performed throughout the IVF treatment process.
- Surrogacy: If the fertilized egg develops through the use of a surrogate mother, the cost of IVF can increase to anywhere between $50,000 and $100,000.
- Use of donor eggs: When using a donor egg, cost factors including donor compensation need to be considered.
- Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI): If the sperm used to fertilize the egg has low mobility, one of our doctors can insert the sperm using a process known as ICSI. This procedure typically adds $1,000 to $2,500 to the overall treatment cost.
Predicting the cost of IVF treatments can be difficult since there can be unexpected costs throughout the procedures. Fortunately, there are multiple cost-savings factors to consider. While most insurance plans do not cover IVF, some parts of the procedure (monitoring or medications, for example) may be covered or partially covered by your insurance. If you have questions about which portions of your IVF treatment might be covered, our staff will be glad to assist you.
