"I always try to be available for my patients since I do understand the pain and frustration associated with fertility problems or endometriosis."


"I understand that the economy is very tough and insurance companies do not cover a lot of the services that might help you. I always try to minimize your out of pocket cost while encouraging the most successful and effective treatments available."

How much does Infertility Treatment Cost?
Infertility care is expensive. Many insurance companies are now recognizing their responsibility to cover some of these costs since infertility does represent "real" pathology. Yet, insurance companies typically have been reluctant to cover infertility care. Hopefully, this situation will improve in the near future.

Many couples are surprised that they are still responsible for many of the services provided by an infertility specialist, even when their infertility specialist actually "accepts" their particular insurance plan. The reason for this is that each insurance plan will only cover certain identifiable services and if the infertility service provided by your physician is "not covered" by your insurance plan then responsibility for payment falls back on you. A large number of insurance plans cover virtually no advanced infertility services.

The poor coverage of infertility services by managed care contracts makes it far less important to choose an infertility specialist who "accepts your insurance."

If you decide to receive medical care from an infertility specialist who does not accept your insurance plan, you should always ask you insurance provider whether you are eligible for "out of network" coverage. If you are eligible (or if you can convince your provider that your desired physician is the only doctor in your geographic area that can provide appropriate care for you), you will often receive a high percentage (70-80%) of the usual fees that are paid by your insurance.

New infertility practices may discount their fees while they are growing, and some established infertility practices will try to attract new infertile couples into their practice by offering "special deals." One should be cautious when considering these situations. Generally, finding an infertility specialist with a proven record of success, considerable clinical experience in all aspects of infertility care, an emphasis on highly individualized care, and competitive fees for the geographical area is a reasonable goal. Board certification in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility is also valuable.

You should always feel free to call your insurance provider and ask about your infertility coverage. Additionally, you can call your local infertility center(s) to ask what level of financial responsibility (burden) you should expect given your particular situation. Realise that your treatment plan will be highly tailored to your own needs as a couple. This selection of a plan may involve some expensive tests or procedures but should be chosen to give you the best results with the least overall risk and cost. Because each couple's plan may be different, the infertility center may not be able to give you an accurate idea of the cost for your care until you and your doctor have developed and settled on an appropriate plan.

You should also always feel free to obtain a second, or third, opinion about your infertility care. The cost of this opinion is usually not very great (possibly 250 dollars) when compared to the total cost of infertility care. You might be surprised by how different the recommended approach of different "recognized experts" really is. If you understand the basic infertility principles (such as described here) you can often decide for yourself which plan makes the most sense "for you." Your initial investment (including time, energy, money, emotions) in finding the best doctor "for you" is repaid many times over if you are comfortable with the doctor.
