IVF Cost Plan. What is the Cost of IVF?
Like many advanced medical procedures, infertility treatment can be costly. To help make sure that our patients can access the high-quality care they need at the most affordable prices possible, RMA of Connecticut offers two important service and payment options exclusively to our patients who do not have insurance coverage for IVF and IUI infertility treatment.
In vitro fertilization (IVF) and Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) procedures are among the most widely used and successful treatment options in reproductive medicine. RMA of Connecticut therefore offers the following plans to help you meet your family building goals.
Affordable IVF: The IVF Opportunity Plan
In many cases, couples who want to have a baby are treated with in vitro fertilization (IVF). IVF is a process where eggs are retrieved from the woman and are combined with sperm in a laboratory. One or more embryos are then transferred to the woman’s uterus. RMACT offers all of the services required for IVF as well as advanced procedures including intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), assisted hatching, and embryo cryopreservation.
During an IVF cycle, women are treated with medications to stimulate the development of multiple ovarian follicles to produce eggs for fertilization. The RMACT medical team closely monitors this process using blood tests and ultrasounds. Mature eggs are retrieved using a surgical procedure with ultrasound. We then combine the retrieved eggs and sperm and transfer a limited number of embryos into the woman’s uterus to achieve a pregnancy.
Couples who are eligible for The IVF Opportunity Plan at RMACT pay $12,250* for one IVF cycle. The IVF Opportunity Plan includes baseline blood work and ultrasound, IVF Teach class, cycle monitoring (blood work and ultrasounds), egg retrieval, anes- thesia for the egg retrieval, embryo transfer, ICSI (if appropriate, on all eggs retrieved), assisted hatching, embryo cryopreservation and one year of storage, and cycle medications for up to and including ten days of stimulation.
Patient financing plans offered by some IVF centers try to reduce costs or improve outcomes by using lower doses of medications or by limiting access to younger patients or patients who have not previously failed a treatment cycle. The IVF Opportunity Plan at RMACT is open to all patients who do not have insurance coverage. In addition, patients in The IVF Opportunity Plan are treated with the highest quality products and services including optimal doses of all medications to achieve a successful pregnancy.
Costs associated with the fertility work-up/checklist, sonohysterosalpingogram, outside monitoring, or medical treatment associated with an unsuccessful cycle (treatment for miscarriage, ectopic or biochemical pregnancy) are not included. Costs associated with oocyte and sperm cryopreservation as well as TESA/MESA are also not included.
You can withdraw from The IVF Opportunity Plan at any time. If you withdraw from the program prior to starting medications, you will receive a full refund. If you withdraw after starting medications you will be refunded $4,050. If your cycle is cancelled prior to egg retrieval due to a medical reason (i.e., poor response, premature ovulation) you will receive a refund of $5,055. If you have your egg retrieval but do not have an embryo transfer, you will receive a refund of $650.00.
