Hi, I live in Florida where infertility coverage isn't mandated. I have Aetna, and diagnostic procedures are covered but infertility treatments are excluded.
I haven't been ovulating. I tried Clomid 4 cycles but it wasn't monitored. I never got a positive OPK. After that I went to an RE.
The RE just recommended IUI with Femara and trigger shots. It looks like the cycle would be about $1k or more once its all said and done with the IUI, ultrasounds, meds, labs, etc.
I was wondering if since I've never really had a monitored cycle, if I should ask if I could try to do those meds with ultrasound/lab monitoring and try timed intercourse. DH's last semen analysis was normal and all my tests have otherwise been normal, I just don't think I ovulate. Thoughts?
I was also wondering if a monitored cycle was considered infertility treatment and if my insurance might cover the ultrasounds, etc. Anyone have experience with this?
