IUI (Intrauterine Insemination) Cost Plan. What is cost of IUI?
In most cases, couples who are having trouble conceiving and achieving a successful preg-nancy are treated with ovulation induction and artificial insemination. These procedures are among the most widely used and successful treatment options in reproductive medicine. With The Opportunity Plan, patients at RMACT who do not have any infertility insurance coverage pay one price for up to three cycles of ovulation induction with oral medications and intrauterine insemination.
Affordable IUI: The IUI Opportunity Plan
Intrauterine insemination involves placing a concentrated semen sample in the uterine cavity to improve the chances of conception. IUI is a form of artificial insemination.
Intrauterine insemination serves three basic purposes: 1) It gets a high concentration of sperm into the female reproductive tract, increasing the chance of sperm reaching the egg to achieve fertilization. 2) It helps to get higher number of sperm high into the female reproductive tract, which helps overcome mild to moderate male fertility problems. 3) With the help of our office and the use of an ovulation predictor kit, your fertility specialist is able to synchronize timing to optimize your chances of becoming pregnant.
How the IUI Opportunity Plan Works
You will be treated with up to three cycles of ovulation induction and intrauterine insemination with oral medications for a fee of $6,180. This represents a significant reduction in the total cost for three cycles of IUI with oral medications. The IUI Opportunity Plan includes all cycle monitoring (blood work and ultrasounds), baseline blood work and ultrasounds, sperm washes, intrauterine inseminations (two per cycle) and the injection necessary for ovulation timing. If you achieve a successful pregnancy at any stage during this treatment, the fee is non-refundable.
You can withdraw from The Opportunity Plan at any time. If you choose to withdraw from the Plan after starting treatment, you will be refunded:
After beginning the 1st cycle: $2,125
2nd cycle: $1,250
3rd cycle: $0 (no refund provided)
If the RMACT clinical staff determined you are not a good candidate for The Opportunity Plan based on medical and laboratory findings, you will be withdrawn from the program and will receive:
After beginning the 1st cycle: $3,025
2nd cycle: $1,725
3rd cycle: $0 (no refund provided)
Costs associated with the fertility work-up/checklist, sonohysterosalpingogram (SHG), outside monitoring, or medical treatment associated with an unsuccessful cycle (treatment for a miscarriage, ectopic or biochemical pregnancy) are not included. In most cases, patients who fail to become pregnant following three cycles of IUI with oral medications should consider treatment with In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)1. RMA of Connecticut also offers the IVF Opportunity Plan for patients who want an affordable option for high-quality treatment involving IVF.
