For millions of couples who struggle to start a family, infertility is an intensely private issue. It can be difficult to talk about, even with the closest of friends and family members. If you and your partner find yourself on this emotional and physical journey, you know all too well how uncomfortable asking for help or for a clinic referral can be.
So how do you choose a fertility clinic? Certainly, success rates are important. And if you’re considering IVF, cost is probably a leading factor. Still, as you research clinics in your area, there are other key items to weigh, such as treatment options, physician training and more.
IVF cost: What does your insurance cover?
Although mandatory infertility coverage is not available in Minnesota, the Center for Reproductive Medicine works with many insurance providers. Depending on your provider, network and plan, the following services could be covered:
- Physician consultation
- Infertility diagnostic testing
- Infertility treatment monitoring (including ultrasound, laboratory testing and intrauterine insemination)
We will work diligently with your insurance provider to ensure that as much of your care is covered as possible. We will also help you navigate your insurance options; exploring all available choices for covered or reimbursed IVF costs, and make sure you’re aware of all fees associated with other services.
Look for a full range of treatment options
So many factors can contribute to infertility, including health history, lifestyle and more. There are no one-size-fits-all treatments, which means your care may or may not require IVF. At the Center for Reproductive Medicine, we begin with a thorough evaluation before suggesting an infertility solution (which could be a simple, noninvasive treatment). After your evaluation, we create a personalized plan selected from a complete range of innovative, proven treatments.
