Taking a holistic approach to the financial aspect of your treatment plan can be helpful in managing what can be an overwhelming process. While our physicians will customize a treatment plan based on your best options for success, it is challenging to predict exactly how long it will take for you to get pregnant. However, one area where you can take control is in determining how to most effectively manage payment for your treatment. Careful advance planning ensures you have all the information you need to make the decisions that are right for you.
A Range of Costs
Just as each patient’s infertility treatment plan is unique, so are the costs associated with their plan. In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is an extremely effective procedure, and one that, ultimately, many patients undergo. However, there are lower cost options that are quite effective and may be covered by insurance. Your physician and financial counselor will discuss all of your options with you to help you make the right choice.
Communication and Information
Our financial counselors are here to guide you through all of the factors that go into deciding how to manage the finances of treatment: emotional tolerance, time frame, treatment options, religious/spiritual beliefs and total budget. Talking through your personal preferences and taking a realistic look at your budget enables us to help you put together an effective long-term plan. Putting yourself in this position can alleviate a lot of stress, enabling you to focus your energy elsewhere.
You may be surprised to learn what your insurance plan will and will not cover. It is important to carefully review the benefits and requirements of your infertility-related coverage. If you need assistance we are here to help. However, the best way to avoid potential issues is by understanding the details of your insurance plan, benefits and requirements.
