MCRM Dispels The Myths Of IVF Costs
The number one concern for many individuals struggling through infertility is the fear of the overall costs involved. Media reports, headlines in magazines and even cost analysis studies via insurance companies and institutional IVF centers, seem to affirm these ideas that advanced reproductive technologies (ART) are not accessible to many couples simply due to cost.
NOT THE FACT at MCRM
The Missouri Center for Reproductive Medicine (MCRM Fertility) has taken this issue seriously and is taking steps to allow more accessible IVF and other advanced technologies and treatments for both male and female fertility factors to ALL individuals. First, we work with and accept most major insurance carriers and in most cases the initial diagnostic screenings and tests are covered. Also, in most cases, a referral from your family physician or OBGYN is NOT required prior to seeking advice and/or assistance from MCRM. Secondly, MCRM offers the region’s most advanced technology, including the ONLY EmbryoScope® time-lapse system, on-site advanced male semen analysis testing and innovative sperm selection techniques. MCRM is able to offer our services at a cost of around 55% less than other regional fertility centers.
MCRM offers multiple IVF packages that allow treatments to fit into most every patients financial and medical needs. MCRM’s gold standard, IVF Gold, is a comprehensive, inclusive IVF package that includes several key features that are often provided to patients on an ala carte basis at other centers including:
- Intra-cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)
- Magnified Sperm Selection (MSI)
- Culture and Fertilization of Embryos through Day 6
- Assisted Hatching
- Embryo Cryopreservation
- Preimplantation Genetic Screening (PGS)
- Sperm Nanobead Selection Process
Additionally, depending on your exact case, MCRM Fertility may be able to utilize medication protocols that yield to successful outcomes at a cost as low as $1,000 compared to the often common costs of $5,000-$6,000.
Overall, these steps lead to significantly lower total costs while still including the latest technologies and advancements and most importantly resulting in successful pregnancies and live births.
MCRM also offers several discount programs including:
- IVF Silver
- IVF Gold
- Multiple Embryo Banking Cycles
- Assured Reproductive Care and Health (ARCH) Programs
Assured Reproductive Care And Health (ARCH) Program
IVF is the most effective fertility treatment for most women, but the cost and the uncertainty of outcome may keep patients like you from trying. To help more women and couples build their families and afford IVF, MRCM Fertility is proud to offer the ARCH Refund Program as an option for most of our patients, guaranteeing a refund if you don’t have a baby after treatment.
This program is designed to help you save valuable time and money, while maximizing your chances of having a healthy baby with IVF. Patients who are eligible for the refund program can take advantage of up to three IVF treatment cycles, including use of all viable frozen embryos. If you do not have an on-going pregnancy within three cycles, we will refund you up to 40%.
MCRM Fertility is able to offer our ARCH Refund Program to more than 70% of self-pay patients, while most other fertility clinics offer refund programs to only a limited number of patients. This is because we use the Univfy PreIVF Report, which provides highly accurate, personalized predictions of each individual patient’s IVF success. With the Univfy PreIVF Report, many more patients can qualify for the ARCH Refund Program.
