In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) - Average Price and Payments Options
By HCRM on June 21, 2013
Many people would like to start a family of their own but are unable to for a variety of reasons. That's why they turn to fertility specialists who understand how to meet their needs and make their dreams a reality. One of the more common fertility treatments out there is in vitro fertilization (IVF). We'd like to take a moment right now to look into the procedure and its cost so that you have an understanding of what it can achieve and how you can pay for it.
About In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)
IVF is a process in which eggs are harvested from a woman and fertilized in a laboratory setting. IVF can be combined with other fertility treatments (e.g., egg donation, sperm donation, surrogate carriers) depending on the needs of the patient.
The Average Cost of In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)
The average cost of IVF treatment can vary a great deal from patient to patient. For that reason, we don't believe that providing a price range or even a national average would communicate the various issues that go into the IVF process. That said, if you visit our Omaha fertility center, we will be more than happy to provide you with a personal estimate and break down the total cost of treatment.
Factors Affecting the Cost of In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)
A number of factors will affect the cost of IVF, including:
- The geographic location of the practice
- The fertility specialists at the practice
- The complexity of the patient's case
- Additional procedures used as part of the fertility treatment
- Discounts and promotions at a given practice
What about health insurance for in vitro fertilization (IVF)?
Though rare, some health insurance providers do cover IVF. We encourage you to check with your insurance provider as each policy and company varies in terms of coverage.
In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) and Payment Plans
Since the cost of IVF can place a burden on households, our fertility specialists offer patients monthly installments plans through a third party. It's helpful to think of these options in a similar to a credit card. A trusted third party will pay for the total cost for the IVF procedure. The patient will then be responsible for paying back the total cost of the loan to the third party on a monthly basis. A reasonable interest rate will apply. Many patients appreciate this payment option since it helps them budget as needed in the months ahead.
