Heartland Center for Reproductive Medicine:

Our Response to COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

HCRM is dedicated to keep our patients and staff safe and healthy during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. HCRM has policies and guidelines in place aligned with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and local and state health authorities to help prevent the spread of illness. We are also adhering to recent guidelines that have been published by the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) regarding the treatment of current and new patients.

Please review the new procedures we have put into place at HCRM:

1. All patients will receive a phone call 24-48 hours prior to the appointment and complete a prescreening questionnaire with questions regarding their travel history in the past 14 days and the presence of respiratory symptoms (fever of 100.4 or higher, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath) within the past 14 days.

2. All patients and visitors will complete the same prescreening questionnaire with a HCRM staff member prior to entering the clinic on the day of the appointment. Please allow for an extra 5 minutes prior to your appointment to complete the prescreening. It is possible that a patient may need to reschedule his/her appointment based on symptoms or travel history.

3. HCRM requests that patients come to the clinic unaccompanied, leaving their partners/support waiting for them at home or in their vehicles when feasible. We request that patients do not bring children to their appointment.

4. With the use of Telemedicine, we hope to continue to provide care to our new and current patients.

5. HCRM will reduce the frequency of clinic appointments during treatment cycle monitoring.

6. HCRM will frequently enforce infection control processes within the clinic, including good hand washing hygiene, frequent disinfecting of patient rooms and surfaces, and social distancing.

We at HCRM appreciate your ongoing support as we work together and do our part to "flatten the curve." Please contact our office at (402) 717-4200 for more information or any questions.

Planning for the Costs of IUI By HCRM on August 15, 2015

Happy, attractive coupleThere is a wide range of factors that can cause a couple to have difficulties conceiving a child. Fortunately, for just about every cause of infertility, there are also fertility treatments that can help patients navigate obstacles in order to successfully achieve pregnancy. In the case of IUI, or intrauterine insemination, many fertility problems can be avoided, which gives couples facing a variety of infertility causes (low sperm count, endometriosis, cervical problems, etc.) the chance to conceive naturally. While IUI can be a great success, it is understandable that patients need to plan ahead for its costs. We discuss IUI costs with our Omaha patients so that they can budget the expense of treatment and go into the procedure free of stress or worries.

What Is IUI?

IUI, or intrauterine insemination, is a procedure more commonly referred to as artificial insemination. However, this treatment has improved quite a bit in recent years. During this procedure, a concentrated sample of washed sperm is inserted (via catheter) directly into the fallopian tubes. In the past, sperm were injected into the vaginal canal, meaning that they still had to travel before reaching the eggs for fertilization. By placing the sperm so close to the fallopian tubes and eggs, the chances of a natural conception are increased.

What Are the Costs of IUI?

IUI is an assisted reproductive technology that requires minimal doctor intervention. It is also one of the most affordable fertility treatments available. The costs of IUI will vary by clinic and by patient, so it is best to schedule a consultation in order to accurately determine the cost of treatment. However, the average IUI treatment ranges between $300 and $800. This price typically includes the cost of sperm processing as well as the actual insemination procedure. However, there are many additional aspects that may be included in IUI treatment. These include the following:

  • Ultrasound
  • Blood monitoring of follicle development
  • Fertility drug treatment

All of these elective procedures may increase the chances of successful IUI treatment, but they also will increase the final cost of treatment. To give patients a cost estimate that is specific to their unique needs, it is important to schedule a personal consultation in which all aspects of treatment can be discussed.

Benefits of IUI

IUI treatment offers patients many benefits. The first of which is the chance to conceive naturally and avoid the need for more invasive fertility treatments. It is because of the non-invasive nature of this treatment, as well as the low cost when compared to other fertility treatments (a typical IVF procedure can cost between $10,000 and $12,000) that IUI is typically one of the first fertility treatment options to be considered.

Schedule an Appointment

If you have questions about IUI treatment and would like to know if it may be a fertility treatment that could help you in your attempt to conceive, schedule an appointment with one our fertility specialists at the Heartland Center for Reproductive Medicine, PC at your earliest convenience. We look forward to hearing from you.
