IVF Medications

How much will the medications for IVF cost?

There are several different medications that may be required during your treatment cycle.  Some of these medications are expensive.  Wide variations in drug insurance coverage exist.  We are not aware of any individual plan that covers fertility medications once a diagnosis has been made.  Please review your employer benefits brochure to determine if there are any dollar limits or exclusions on your coverage.  Further details on your coverage can be obtained from your insurer by providing the unique DIN (Drug Identification Number).
