IVF Opportunity Plan Makes IVF More Affordable
No one denies that infertility treatment can be costly. In fact, for many patients, the cost of IVF (in vitro fertilization) is their primary concern before learning more. The fertility doctors and financial specialists at RMACT strive to offer affordable IVF options to bring the cost of IVF within reach. One of these options is the IVF Opportunity Plan.
Is there Infertility Insurance Coverage?
Infertility insurance coverage varies among providers. Some insurance providers do not offer coverage for fertility services at all. Others offer limited amounts of coverage, depending on individual plans and treatments. The IVF Opportunity Plan is an option, exclusively available to patients at RMACT, for those who do not have insurance coverage for infertility treatment. In addition, if a patient decides to withdraw from treatment, the plan offers refunds matched to various stages of the process.
What’s in IVF Coverage?
The IVF Opportunity Plan covers a group of comprehensive services provided by RMACT's team of surgeons, nurses and other specially trained patient care professionals. The coverage includes baseline blood work and ultrasound, IVF Teach class, cycle monitoring (blood work and ultrasounds), egg retrieval, anesthesia for the egg retrieval, embryo transfer, ICSI (if appropriate, on all eggs retrieved), assisted hatching, embryo cryopreservation and one year of storage, and cycle medications for up to and including ten days of stimulation. Certain specialized costs that may be relevant for some IVF patients cannot be included in the plan and these are described clearly at the beginning of the process.
After qualifying for the IVF Opportunity Plan, patients pay $11,750 for one IVF cycle. A full refund will be granted upon withdrawing from the program before starting medications. After starting medications, a $4,050 refund will be granted. If your cycle is cancelled prior to egg retrieval due to a medical reason (i.e., poor response, premature ovulation) you will receive a refund of $5,055. If you have your egg retrieval but do not have an embryo transfer, you will receive a refund of $650.00.
People can withdraw from the IVF Opportunity Plan at any time. Unlike some fertility centers that try to reduce costs by using lower medication doses or by limiting access to their programs, RMACT seeks to improve pregnancy outcomes by offering the highest quality treatment to everyone. We want to help you find the financial opportunity that meets your needs. Additional payment programs for affordable fertility treatment at RMACT will be highlighted in upcoming posts.

Bear with me.
I haven't written a blog about the weather in a long time.
So here goes.
Rain or snow?
It's October, I live on the east coast of the United States.
Let's go with rain.
Unless it snows.
For those of us who experience infertility, these rapid changes in temperature, precipitation and forecasting feel very familiar.
Changes in medication and treatment, even in the middle of an IUI (intrauterine insemination cycle) or IVF (invitro fertilization) cycle are fairly common.
Just like the weather, the smallest of details add up and create change.
As one of my best friends always quotes, "a butterfly flaps it's wings in Paris and we have a hurricaine in Florida".
Anyone out there have trouble with these swiftly changing plans? Anyone out there feel out of control?
Welcome to infertility.
My friends are floating around in my head today. So is my sister.
Here's what I consider.
The Serenity Prayer:
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
Oh, what I wouldn't do for an extra dose of wisdom today.
Fertile Yoga tonight in Brookfield/Danbury.
I'm looking forward to seeing you.
Until then, I'm just keeping an eye out for what's going on outside.
Sometimes that's just easier than checking the weather forecast.
