Managing Cost

Inexpensive therapies are often effective in treating infertility. Up to 30% of our patients become pregnant using oral medications alone and more than 50% of our intrauterine inseminations (IUI) result in pregnancy within 3 tries. Fertility treatment costs increase if more advanced technologies are required. Depending on your insurance plan, diagnostic testing may be covered, however, most plans do not cover infertility treatments. In consult with each patient, our specialists prescribe the therapy most likely to result in pregnancy while considering many factors, including cost.

We offer a 100% Money Back IVF program, IVF multi-cycle discounts, low interest financing, and income based discounts in order to help patients afford care. We do everything possible to keep costs down, while helping patients to achieve the desired results.

Additionally, we not only match, but we beat our competitor’s prices by 2% (see details and exclusions below).

Consultation Fees

During the initial consultation, we provide patients with as much information as possible regarding diagnostic fertility tests needed, specific treatment options, and the fertility prognosis. Many insurance companies pay for the initial consultations (co-pay may be required and deductibles may apply). The full price for the initial consultation varies based on the amount of time spent with the patient and whether the patient has had previous infertility treatment. Diagnostic testing is not included in the cost of the consultation.

Follow-Up Appointments and Consultations

Oocyte Retrieval & Storage Costs

Costs for egg (Oocyte) storage depend on the cycle plan chosen and type of storage tank used.

Typically costs include the following:

  • New Patient visit to complete a physician consultation and medical history review (copay if the patient has insurance or cash price of $230, if uninsured).
  • Infectious Disease testing (billed to insurance or, if the patient is self-pay, paid to LabCorp at time of service for best pricing).
  • Cost of medications to stimulate the ovaries (billed by and paid to a 3rd party pharmacy).
  • Cost of anesthesia $325 cash price / $340 credit card price (paid to 3rd party anesthetist).
  • Options for different egg retrieval packages are as follows:

Global Single Cycle Plan: $8,329 (includes monitoring, retrieval & freezing and does not include storage)

Multi-Cycle Discount Plans (includes monitoring, retrieval, freezing (cryo), and 1 year of storage starting at the date of first freezing (cryo) retrieval). Options are as follows:

  • MCD 2 (2 cycles): $15,235
  • MCD 3 (3 cycles): $20,017
  • MCD 4 (4 cycles): $25,022

* Patients must be approved by their physician for these plans. The number of eggs retrieved can vary and is not guaranteed. Patients living outside of the Wasatch Front area may elect to have their monitoring performed elsewhere, with approval from RCC’s physician. In this instance, the monitoring charge is waived.

  • After the contract is fulfilled (with a live birth or when all cycles are completed), a yearly storage fee is charged. Storage is billed by calendar year. Partial year storage is prorated.

Prices for storage options are as follows:

  • Liquid Nitrogen Tank: $518 annually or
  • Vapor Tank: $777 annually (patients not tested for infectious disease need to use the vapor tank for storage)
  • If a patient wants to use an RCC tank to transport embryos or eggs (oocytes), the cost is $231. RCC will place a $1,000 holding fee on your credit card to ensure the tank is returned same day, undamaged. There is a $100 fee per day if the tank is not returned same day.
  • Shipping and handling costs may also be applicable if using a third-party shipper such as Federal Express, USPS, etc.

Please note, price matching does not apply to storage fees.

Sperm Cryopreservation

Costs for sperm storage vary depending on the number of times specimens are collected and typically include the following:

  • New Patient visit to complete a medical history review and physician consultation (copay if the patient has insurance or cash price, if they do not)
  • Infectious Disease testing (billed to insurance or paid to LabCorp at time of service for best pricing, if the patient is not insured)
  • Collection Fee $387 per collection or pre-paid package prices at $600 for 3 collections, $1,000 for 5 collections, or $1,500 for 10 collections.

Costs for Infertility Drugs

We recommend patients needing FSH stimulated cycles consider applying for Compassionate Care Medications from EMD Serono.

Medications from Outside Pharmacies

There are many variables that affect which medications may be needed making a precise cost estimate very difficult. Medications are purchased through outside pharmacies so we try to steer patients to the most cost-effective medication sources.

Using Insurance

Our billing team evaluates each patient’s benefits and treatment plan to help patients understand what insurance will pay. Many insurance plans cover the initial evaluation and diagnostic testing. Regretfully, many insurance carriers do not cover infertility treatments such as intrauterine insemination (IUI) or in vitro fertilization (IVF).

Our physicians are In-Network with many insurance companies, but not all specific insurance plans.

We strongly encourage you to check with your insurance plan to see if your doctor of choice is In-Network, and if not, determine if your plan has Out of Network benefits and if infertility testing and treatment are covered benefits. RCC is the preferred provider for the following insurance companies

Financial Assistance

Our financial counselors work very closely with each couple. We believe financial circumstances should not prevent families from having the child of their dreams.

RCC offers many programs to help patients afford infertility treatments including an IVF 100% Money Back Guarantee program, multiple IVF cycle discount, low interest loans, income based discounts, and grants.

IVF Loan Application

RCC works with patients to help them plan for costs associated with infertility treatments. We offer several innovative programs such as our IVF 100% Money Back Guarantee. You deliver a live baby or your money is refunded.

For qualifying patients, financing is available through Reproductive Care Finance, PC (an RCC affiliated company) or through CapexMD. Financing is available up to 80% of the cost of a Global Single Cycle. For the IVF Money Back Guarantee Package plan and the IVF Discounted Multiple Cycle Program, 100% financing is available.

Low interest rate loans have reasonable repayment terms for patients needing IVF with rates varying, starting at 4% APR with an average of 10-14% APR, depending on the credit worthiness of the applicant.

Self-Pay Patients

Options are available to help patients afford infertility diagnostic and treatment services. Typically, our services are paid for in one or more of the following ways: insurance, fee for service, financing (IVF only), and more. Contact RCC to learn more about our self-pay options.

There is a 2% discount for paying with cash or check.

Income Based Discounts

Income based discounts are available for couples with a Federally adjusted gross income less than $60,000 for the past two years. The maximum discount possible is 30% off single cycle IVF or IUI, with the average discount awarded around 10%. Gross income (W2, 1099, K1, self employment and farm income) for the past 2 years, a copy of your last tax return, and a copy of the last pay stub for an individual, if single, or both last pay stubs for couples must be provided.

Patients must determine their most cost-effective option if they qualify for multiple discounts as discounts cannot be combined.

Military Discounts

Active duty military personnel and their spouses may qualify for a 5% discount that can be applied towards the Global Single Cycle plan with associated fees. Discounts do not apply to outside labs or medications nor do they apply to storage fees.

Patients need to determine their most cost-effective options if they qualify for multiple discounts as multiple discounts cannot be combined.

Other Discounts

RCC offers a failed cycle discount for patients who do not have IVF insurance coverage. We also offer a 5% discount to patients returning for a fresh IVF treatment cycle after a successful delivery.

Price Matching (and beat by 2%) Competitor's Prices

We will match (and beat by 2%) any legitimate written quote for similar services by a similarly qualified physician and lab in Utah. Some exclusions apply such as storage fees, matching special, free, or significantly reduced IVF or other services due to special drawings or promotions that are limited in nature.

Grants

Grant money donated by former patients is available to help offset costs for need based patients seeking to grow their families. Please contact the billing office to get more information regarding qualifying for this grant money.

Additionally, local infertility support groups regularly hold events co-sponsored by RCC in which grant money is awarded to attendees. Please see the links to these organizations at the bottom of our Home page and also look for upcoming events in the Events section on our website.
