Trouble TTC

IUI cost ?

Hello ladies, so my insurance is going to be changing soon and I am going to lose my fertility treatment coverage.  So I was wondering if any of you could help me to be prepared for how much a typical IUI cycle will cost OOP.  TIA

    At my RE's office pricing is this:

    IUI is $350 (includes wash and procedure)
    u/s is $289


    IUI with oral stims is $639 (one u/s and IUI)

    IUI with hybrid stims is $928 (two u/s and IUI)

    IUI with injects is $1217 (three u/s and IUI)  

    These prices do not include meds.  My meds for just oral stims were ~$105.  My meds for hybrids are ~$400


    Began TTC #1 in January 2011

    My IUI's with Clomid have been pretty cheap:

     $340 for two monitoring ultrasounds (CD3 and CD11/12)

     $150 sperm wash

    Around $150 for the IUI 

    $20 for Clomid, $100 for the Ovidrel

    So around $750 for the whole cycle. Cost goes up from there depending on meds, but the other procedures don't change (unless you need more b/w). 

    TTC #1 7/10, Me (31)- Dx DOR (AMH 0.6); DH (30)- normal
    BFP on Cycle #8. Natural M/C at ~8 weeks
    IUI #1 and #2 (8/12, 9/12)- 50 mg Clomid + Ovidrel = BFNs
    IVF #1 (EPP) 13R/10M/9F, 5DT 1-4AA blast, beta #1-148, beta #2-322, 5 frosties!

    It's different between REs offices. I would call your office and ask for a price quote. My monitoring and blood work is 100 percent covered but I pay 50 percent of the IUI process and 30 copay for visit. This cycle for 2 visits, wash and IUI I paid 170 and then 10 for my clomid Walmart pricing.

    I would recommend getting a written explanation of benefits since my infertility benefits also applied to the IUI and the other stuff was for diagnostics.

    I'm not sure what the u/s and labs cost... they are fully covered by insurance. The sperm wash is $75 and the IUI is $150.

    I picked up a pamphlet from my RE's office and it says the typical cost for an IUI cycle is 1,600 plus meds (400-1000).

    If your insurance covers part of it they negotiate a different rate and then pay that negotiated rate. However, if you are entirely OOP it is a lot more expensive :(

    Here's my rundown (50% covered)

    CD 3 Monitoring - $112
    Clomid - $6
    Menopur - $60
    Trigger - $90
    Mid cycle monitoring - $112
    IUI (w/wash included) - $66
    Total - $446

    100% cost - $892

    (This will also depend on how many and what types of meds, if any, you're going to be on. Also, if you are on injectibles then factor in the cost of needles, sharps container, etc.)

    Good luck!

    My clinic charges $1500 for monitoring, wash and IUI.

    mine was 2300 for the whole cycle of back to back IUIs, monitoring, sperm prep, etc. but the meds were another 2800 :(  I did injections though.


    I just realized, I think I overpay :(

    Our total cost was $1850 for a Clomid IUI cycle. We are totally OOP. We also did a little shopping around and found this to be reasonable and according to this article it seems the average total cost is anywhere from $1200 to $2000.

     Good luck to you!

    TTC since October 2011. No luck yet :( But am learning lots and happy to share stuff we learn. Trying to Conceive Ticker
