Fertility Treatment Costs and Financing
It’s not surprising that one of the most asked questions (and probably the one that brought you to this page) is how much do fertility treatments cost? As financial counselors for MCRM Fertility, it’s our job to provide you with your first look at the expenses associated with fertility treatments like IVF and IUI.
Just as there’s nothing “cookie cutter” about MCRM Fertility’s treatment approaches, we recognize that every patient we care for is different and everyone’s path to pregnancy is unique. Our goal is to help make that path financially manageable.
Meeting Your Financial Counselor: What to Expect
The first touchpoint with an MCRM financial counselor typically occurs following your initial consultation with our fertility specialists, Dr. Peter Aherling, Dr. Mira Aubuchon or Dr. Vinita Alexander
By the time you sit down to talk about costs, your financial counselor will know a lot about your case. They will have reviewed your doctor’s treatment recommendations which will help develop a more realistic pricing strategy for you. Most important, they will have verified your insurance acceptance and reviewed your insurance benefits online. The more answers gathered at the start of your fertility journey, the less chance for cost surprises later on. Knowing the details also allows your financial counselor to lay out and discuss all the options you need to make your decision, and you’ll be walked through each one step-by-step. MCRM Fertility understands how much you have at stake, both emotionally and financially. We’ll do everything in our power to make the process clear and simple.
Customization is Our Hallmark
Some of our patients are surprised that MCRM Fertility has no hard and fast formula as far as costs. Every patient’s situation is unique. Therefore, our approach is to customize a financial plan that meets your needs.
A difference at MCRM Fertility is the following services are considered critical and therefore standard with all of our IVF packages:
When your financial counselor presents you with a financial agreement, you won’t ever feel pressured to sign it right then and there. Instead, we encourage you to take it home, read it, discuss it, and call with any questions.
Great Lenders Make It Possible
MCRM Fertility sets a high bar when it comes to selecting lenders to work with our patients. Over the years, we’ve taken the time to vet and align ourselves with some of the very best. These are lenders who truly have a heart for what we do. Just like all of us, our lenders are committed to helping you make the fertility journey possible.
MCRM patients may also enjoy 24-hour loan approval, longer terms if needed, and no penalty for early payoff. As with any loan, the choice of lenders is up to you. We’ll present you with a financial option sheet detailing rates and terms of vetted lenders, and you decide. Aligning with great lenders is just one more way we try to take the financial worry off of your shoulders so you can focus on pregnancy success.
