    Is anyone paying out of pocket for their fertility treatment? DH and I just decided to look into seeing a specialist but no insurance coverage for fertility treatment. How did you choose your fs?? is there like an average on what they charge?

    hi we are paying, we are in the uk. we can wait for NHS but it may take some time.
    i have chosed 2 clinics based on reviews, research and recommendations. My 1st appt is on monday in norway , we fly out tomorrow

    Norway will be about £4, 000, the other clinic in London will be about £10,000..so bit of a difference xx

    Hi,

    Same here we were referred in March nothing happened so we too decided to go down private road mainly cos it is driving me crazy and because in our postcode we would be unlikely to get help in the hospital we want local trust ones come up as weak in league comparison! So far we have looked at south west only and the cost of consultation is £180, sperm analysis is £91, Lap & dye £1800 or £2500 with correction surgery and as far as we can interpret we will be looking at £4000-£5000 per treatment with icsi. I know other parts of the country vary greatly!

    Good luck sweetie xx

    Yep, we are self funding. We have had to take a loan out as we didnt have the money. We arnt entitled to NHS so we have no other option. We have had all our tests done through the doctors and hospital so we havnt had to pay for these. But it will cost us up to £5000

    I'm in California, so I right there with you on no insurance coverage. I have been on Clomid for 8 months and the next step is for me to go see a FS. We are putting this off for a few months because I just started a new job. We have been paying for monthly visits to the gyn and the clomid prescription. Minimal cost compared to what I fear is coming next. I am going with Dr. referrals. My Gyn that was awesome moved out of the state right before I decided I needed to seek help with TTC. I have a totally awesome GP who referred me to a Gyn here. The Gyn is going to be referring me to a FS when I am ready for that. For the FS I will have to travel out of town, because we don't have any in my area. I would do research and have a consultation and see how you feel about the FS. Make sure you see someon you have confidence in. Also, I was talking to my Sis-in-law as she has PCOS and had fertility assistance to conceive her first after 7 years of trying, and she said there was a lot of it that insurance did cover, and they sat down with her and went over what would and wouldn't be covered before they proceeded. Remember it all depends on how it is coded so if some things can be coded something other than fertility then you may get it covered. For instance my Rx and monthly visit is not covered, but my lap in January was and my blood tests are. The lap was for treatment of endo, so they covered that even though my only reason for doing it was fertility reasons. Good luck and keep us updated.
