Many couples dealing with infertility have concerns over the expenses involved with fertility treatments. Fertility treatment is not often covered by insurance, and many couples need to go through multiple treatments to find success. Fertility treatment costs also include any tests, medications, and procedures. The cost of fertility treatments can vary depending on the type of treatment that is needed to address your specific needs. At Bundl we want to make sure you’re informed of all the potential costs, so you know what to expect as you begin treatment.
How much does fertility treatment cost?Fertility treatment prices can range depending on the fertility clinic and the fertility treatment method. On average, IVF treatments cost from $12,000 to $15,000 per treatment cycle. Fertility treatment prices for IUI treatments are typically lower than IVF costs. While each individual treatment can be costly, we know that bundling multiple treatments can significantly reduce fertility treatment costs.
Fertility Consultation CostsFertility consultation costs will vary depending on your clinic and copay costs. After your consultation, your doctor may order preliminary testing and genetic testing which can come at added cost.
Fertility Care Costs ExplainedFertility care costs can be confusing. Your fertility treatment costs will depend on the type of fertility treatment you receive, and any other additional medical care that may be needed. IVF Costs Explained: IVF is the most effective fertility treatment for many, but often requires multiple cycles, and the costs associated with each treatment can add up. Grouping multiple cycles together from the start can help lower your overall cost of IVF treatment. IUI Costs Explained: IUI is typically the first step when seeking fertility. It is generally less expensive than other fertility treatments, like IVF. If IUI treatment is unsuccessful, families transition to IVF treatment. Thus, bundling IUI and IVF treatment cycles together can significantly reduce the overall cost of fertility treatment.
Unexpected Fertility Treatment CostsThere are times when unexpected fees may arise during your treatment that were not covered in your original package price from the clinic. The following may come up as you go through treatment:
- Cryopreservation and storage
- Donor material
- Genetic testing
