7 FREE or low-cost IVF treatment programs you may not know about

A major hurdle for many couples considering the IVF is the cost. Here are some options you may not know which may help in the cost of IVF treatment.

Experiments IVF research for treatment free or inexpensive

Some infertility clinics have IVF trials or treatment that receive IVF funding and grants. Search for your area or online to see if you qualify. You will need to do your research at the fertility clinic to make sure it is reputable as well as check the facility to make sure that the staff are friendly and the rooms and equipment are clean. The IVF experience will be inexpensive and you may even be able to get free IVF treatment.

Find a infertility clinic that does not participate in IVF courses

A common IVF course where two women pass through the first part of the IVF at the same time, then one woman donated her eggs to another woman who could not use her eggs for a reduced price determined by the fertility clinic. You can save up to 50% on your in vitro fertilization costs. The only negative with this is that you may end up having no eggs to freeze if your cycle is not successful.

Find a infertility clinic that participates in donor egg cycles

Through a donor egg cycle, two or three women participate in donor eggs, and all share the cost of IVF treatment. The only negative of this is if the donor does not have enough eggs for a common session.

Consider IVF treatment outside the United States

In-vitro fertilization costs outside the US can be much lower. IVF treatment is cheaper in many countries, including most of Europe, Asia and Mexico. The costs can reach $ 5,000, and there are excellent doctors, facilities and treatments abroad. However, you need to conduct a research to determine exactly what is described in the treatment price, just as you do for the treatment in the United States, as well as take into account the cost of travel, room and board while you are there. In addition, if you are unable to travel, you can also consider getting IVF medicines abroad. This can also reduce the cost of your IVF treatment.

Find a fertility clinic that has a response program or a common risk program

A recovery or joint risk program is a prepayment plan where you will receive a partial or full refund if the pregnancy (or in some cases, live birth) does not come out of your IVF treatment. You will pay a pre-paid fee for a certain number of IVF sessions. If you do not pay for your courses, you'll receive 70-100% of your payment. There are some restrictions depending on the fertility clinic policies in terms of age and services covered.

Take the MINI IVF

The only difference with Mini IVF is the drug system and hormone that occurs first. There are fewer medications used to stimulate the ovary. With mini IVF, less quality eggs are produced but less. The remainder of the IVF process is the same in that women are monitored through the drug system process, egg retrieval, embryo fertilization and embryo transfer all occur, as in traditional IVF. Mini IVF costs are much lower, and cost between $ 3,500 and $ 7,000 per session instead of $ 12,000 to $ 15,000 per session.

Check your insurance plan

Check to see if your insurance company covers any fertility treatment costs. Some insurance companies cover some, if not all, fertilization treatments in the laboratory. In fact, 15 insurance companies require a type of IVF coverage, usually in the form of infertility diagnosis and treatment. The states are: Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Montana, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Rhode Island, Texas and West Virginia.

I hope this has given you a starting point in finding ways to make IVF treatment available to you. There are low cost IVF options out there, you just need to know where to look to find the option that works best for you.
