Paying for Fertility Treatments

For couples trying to get pregnant, dealing with fertility problems can be extremely challenging and stressful. The cost of fertility care can run the broad spectrum from the moderate end of evaluation, counseling or drug therapy to surgical options such as in vitro fertilization (IVF) at the other end. For some couples the cost rises because they need multiple cycles of IVF or other treatments to achieve a pregnancy.

At Penn Fertility Care, we accept most insurance plans and assist our patients in obtaining the proper authorization and referrals for treatment, but we know that not all insurance plans cover fertility care. Some plans may offer partial payment, others none.

We offer comprehensive, state-of-the art infertility treatment at competitive fees and have designed financial packages to meet your individual needs. We have full-time financial counselors available to help you navigate the complicated world of insurance coverage; they will meet with you to review your benefits and help you choose the best financial option based on your unique situation.

Self-Pay Packages

IVF cycles require a core set of services and treatment plans that vary based on a patient's individual situation. We offer a variety of affordable packages for self-paying patients designed to avoid confusion and the extra costs involved with paying for each individual service that may occur during an IVF cycle. We discount and bundle our services into global packages to save you money and so you have the peace of mind of knowing exactly what your treatment will cost.

We offer both single-cycle and multi-cycle IVF packages. Single-cycle packages offer patients a very low cost option to achieve a pregnancy. Multi-cycle packages enables patients the ability to complete a second or third cycle at a significantly discounted rate if the first IVF cycle is unsuccessful. Since the self-pay IVF packages are significantly discounted, charges are not itemized on your account and we do not submit claims to the insurance company. The full fee is required to be paid before the start of the cycle.
