Pricing IVF– Just curious

I just found a breakdown on the cost of IVF. (Scroll way down on that page if you follow the link.) B/c it’s kind of tedious to wade through all of the stuff on that page, I’m summarizing here:

  • Screening lab: $300 (3%)
  • Ultrasound/lab work: $3,000 (30%)
  • Egg recovery: $1,500 (15%)
  • Fertilization lab: $2,000 (20%)
  • Embryo transfer: $1,000 (10%)
  • Ovulation drugs: $2,190 (22%)
  • Total: $9,990 (100%)

Considering what our insurance covers (most ultrasounds and most drugs), I think we could get a cycle of IVF for between $4500 and $5000. Don’t worry. I’m not losing hope for this cycle yet (5 dpo today), but I had some “spare time” at work and decided to do a little research.
