These are some of the questions that come to the minds of patients who first learn about their fertility diagnosis and the cost of treatments. The answer to all of these questions can be complex and will vary with each patient. Prior to doing anything, you should schedule an appointment to discuss your diagnosis and needs. The Fertility Institute of Hawaii infertility specialists will be able to give you answers to most of your financial questions during your initial visit. You may also contact the Fertility Institute of Hawaii’s billing office (808.545.2800) to discuss your insurance questions. For more general information about insurance and insurance options please visit our insurance information page.
The cost of IVF varies based on a patient’s particular needs and insurance coverage. If you have a Hawaii-based insurance plan, your insurance may cover IVF with out-of-pocket co-pay or pre-payment expenses varying between $3,000 and $6,000 depending on insurance. Our billing team can confirm your insurance and co-pay prior to starting your IVF cycle.
Without insurance, IVF ranges between $8,000 to $13,000 plus medications which range from $3,000 to $8,000. There are added costs for those wishing to cryopreserve their embryos or eggs during the IVF cycle or do genetic testing (PGS) on their embryos. Other therapies such as donor sperm, donor egg, or gestational carrier IVF will increase the costs as well. In order to give you an accurate assessment of the individual cost and how costs can be contained, an evaluation and consultation is required. There are typically many options available for infertile patients and the costs will vary depending on diagnosis and the treatment desired or required.
We would like for all of our patients to be able to afford the treatment they deserve regardless of their insurance and financial situation. Therefore, we have partnered with several financial service companies who specialize in helping families just like you. If you have any questions please contact our billing department to discuss your financial needs, treatment costs, and insurance coverage.
