The decision to have a child impacts your family emotionally, physically, and financially. According to a study published by the National Library of Medicine, fertility treatments can average a cost of twenty-to-thirty thousand dollars with some cases exceeding sixty thousand dollars. For most families in America, that is a daunting number.
At Dominion Fertility, we’re here to help make your path to parenthood as seamless as possible. Here are our helpful tips for finding out if your insurance covers fertility treatments.
What are the different types of fertility treatment?
The first step in identifying if you have coverage is to determine what services are considered to be under the category of fertility treatments. The following are treatment options that Dominion Fertility offers:
- IVF (In Vitro Fertilization)
- IUI (Intrauterine Insemination)
- Ovulation Induction
- Frozen Embryo Transfer
- Fertility Preservation
- Egg Donation
- Gestational Carrier
If you are interested in seeking any of the preceding treatments, reach out to your insurance provider to see if your treatment option has coverage.
What Companies Cover Fertility Treatments?
While some companies don’t include fertility coverage, some employers (including large corporations like Google and Amazon) provide well-rounded fertility insurance options for their employees. You can learn more about which companies provide fertility coverage here.
How Do I Know if Fertility is Covered By My Insurance?
While some insurance plans don’t cover fertility treatments, we asked our patient liaison the best way to find out if you have coverage.
