IVF Refund Package

This package is designed for couples who are using their own eggs and will receive a refund for a portion of their costs if no pregnancy is achieved. Must have no insurance coverage.

Description:

  • Patient takes fertility medication to stimulate egg production
  • Patient undergoes egg retrieval
  • The eggs are fertilized with sperm to create embryos
  • The embryos are transferred into the patient’s uterus
  • Excess, good quality embryos may be frozen for future use
  • If pregnancy occurs, frozen embryos remain stored until birth
  • If pregnancy does not occur, the patient must undergo frozen/thawed embryo transfer until pregnancy occurs or until all frozen embryos are used
  • If pregnancy has still not occurred, the patient may undergo two additional fresh cycles up to a total of 3 cycles or until pregnancy has occurred.
  • If all cycles available under this program are exhausted and a pregnancy has not occurred, a full refund of the Laboratory and Physician Fees ($28,750) will be refunded to the patient.
