Met with the RE this morning and we are a go for March/April IVF! Now we just have to decide which payment route we want to take. Our dr. offers 2 different shared risk programs.
IVF fresh OOP- $7495 before meds - only includes one fresh cycle
IVF frozen OOP- $1246 before meds - only includes one frozen cycle
Shared Risk 1 - $12,225 before meds - includes 2 fresh and as many frozen as you can do from result of the 2 fresh. If not pregnant after that, they will refund $3000.
Shared Risk 2 - $15,995 before meds - includes 3 fresh and as many frozen as you can do from a result of the 3 fresh. If not pregnant after that, they refund all $15,995.
I think the Shared Risk are a great idea to do to plan ahead but I also want to hold on to the hope that we will get KU from the 1st attempt. And if we pay the $16,000 and do get pregnant on IVF#1 then we overpaid by $ 8000!
Ahhhh and they tell you not to stress. Hahaha :-)
