k) Understand All Costs and Payment Options

by Ivy Eff

First, find out if your health insurance covers your IVF. Even if you don’t have fertility coverage, sometimes certain parts of your cycles — such as blood tests — can be coded so that they are covered.

Either way, you should then find out how your clinic manages billing and what methods of payment it accepts. Most clinics require that you pay upfront. But some offer payment plans, discounts if your income is under a certain level, shared risk arrangements and even money back guarantees.

You should also find out the exact cost of all medication and services that will be performed. Extra procedures such as ICSI, PGD, assisted hatching, freezing, etc, can add thousands to the total cost of your IVF cycle.
