What is the Cost of IVF?
“In-vitro-fertilization (IVF) is often not covered by health insurance, and yet the cost of IVF is actually very comparable to other types of medical services.” ~ Dr. David Adamson
The cost of in-vitro-fertilization (IVF) can deter many couples and individuals from seeking it as a treatment option for infertility. In this video, Dr. David Adamson, Stanford-trained board certified fertility specialist and founder of Advanced Reproductive Care (ARC) explains the average cost of IVF. Learn:
- What the average cost of a single IVF cycle is
- The cost for the fertility drugs doctors use to stimulate the ovaries during each cycle
- The cost of additional services such as sperm injection or embryo freezing for use in subsequent cycles
- How ARC treatment packages can help reduce the cost of IVF cycles through the ARC Success Program and the ARC Pharmacy Plan
Providing Patient Financial Support Amidst an Economic Disaster
Unemployment, reduced hours, pay cuts. The reality of the COVID-19 Pandemic extends far beyond the pausing of fertility treatments. Over 60% of our country has been financially impacted by stay-at-home orders and social distancing. While clinics are working hard to keep patients in their funnels to start treatment once restrictions are limited, how are these patients going to afford the treatment? It’s not out of line to think that the demand for new financial resources will go up and the need for financing of treatments will increase. But, as we all know, discussing money can be sensitive, especially when it comes along with an infertility journey.
So, When do we talk about it with our patients? How do we talk about it with them? What can we do to help our patients afford proper care while the economy is in a downturn?
On this special episode of Inside Reproductive Health, Griffin talks to Dr. David Adamson of ARC Fertility and Andy Swan of Ally Lending. They discuss not only the changes we can expect in lending and patient decision-making post-pandemic, they also offer advice to financial counselors on approaching the sensitive topic of funding treatment.
This episode was recorded during a live webinar. As the COVID-19 Pandemic continues and new issues arise, we are putting out new information to help you and your fertility business. Follow us on social media for updates on upcoming webinars and how to join them live. Find this information helpful? We’d love it if you’d share with a friend or colleague in the fertility space.
