Re: Who has done an IVF? Would *love* your help! (consultation tomorrow)

I would check to see if there is any way you can get insurance coverage for it. Is there an alternate plan you could join? supplemental insurance? Can you join a shared risk program instead of mini-ivf? etc.
We did full ivf with icsi and assisted zonal hatching. It was mostly covered by insurance (the icsi was $2k extra, but necessary for us) Our first round resulted in DD, and then we changed insurance and no longer have infertility coverage. we just did a FET with our leftover embryos and it will cost us around 8k (including meds and pre-testing) in out of pocket expense. I am about 6.5 weeks now (!!!) I think in a regular cycle the meds can cost around $3k or more depending on how much stims you require.. Keep in mind that pre-testing can cost quite a bit too. Just my blood-work and saline sonogram were about $2k out of pocket.
Best of luck to you!
