Gonal-F costs how much?

Yikes I'm experiencing my first sticker shock moment.  3 rounds of clomid and trigger shots did not prepare me for how much Gonal-F is going to cost WITH my insurance.  They said something like $1200. 

Can that be right?

    WITH insurance?  I pay about $20 each Gonal shot.

  • I'd be asking for another med at that price....or at least calling another pharmacy.  900IU of Follistim is only $750!

    The other pharmacy was more!  I have a message into my doctor to switch me to Follistim - my OOP cost for that is $200.

    My 900IU gonal f pen was 844 and my 450IU was 700-ish. The pharmacy I used works with my doctor's office and I got a little bit of a discount. (I'm talking no more than 90 on the bigger pen and like 40 on the other.)

  • I had no insurance coverage, and the Gonal-F pens were $104 at my clinic (which has about the cheapest dang pharmacy in the area).  I wound up using like 5-6 pens, so it was around $500-$600 for me for an IVF cycle

  • Have you asked your doc if he/she has any samples?

    Mine was kind enough to give me a sample vile of Follistim this round which saved me a bunch.
