It is common for people with an infertility diagnosis to have questions about cost. One of the most common questions about fertility treatment is about IVF cost. Unfortunately, not all medical insurance policies provide coverage for fertility care. For many people, the cost of IVF treatment will determine whether they can start a family.

How can out of pocket IVF costs be reduced?
The first step in reducing out of pocket IVF costs is to determine your insurance coverage. Some policies that exclude fertility treatment may cover diagnostic costs or other lab work. Review your policies and speak with the insurance coordinator at your fertility center to discover your specific costs. You may also want to consider more holistic IVF protocols for your fertility treatment. Holistic IVF options have success rates that are comparable to traditional IVF without the side effects of fertility medication.
