While the definition of “family” has continued to evolve through the years, insurance company guidelines have remained strict and rigid. As a standard, couples must prove medical necessity for infertility treatments before their insurance companies will consider covering the costs of services, meaning donor and surrogate treatments given to same sex couples are typically not recognized by insurances as a covered benefit.
However, for couples who have an insurance plan that our office accepts, our financial team will verify which steps leading up to the treatment might be covered and will then meet with you after your first appointment to discuss all coverage details.
Once you are ready to begin the process, our knowledgeable team can provide you with various options of surrogacy agencies, all of which will be able to guide you through choosing a gestational carrier. Typically, surrogate cycles will start at approximately $60,000, but the well versed billing teams at both Neway and the agencies we partner with will be able to outline all details for you, so you are well informed of anticipated costs ahead of time.
At Neway, we can refer you to one of many agencies we work with, or we can help you to choose a candidate from our own pool of donors. A coordinator will help you to decide if choosing frozen donor eggs, cycling along with the donor to do a fresh embryo transfer or even sharing a donor with another patient might be a good option for you.
Most insurance companies do not currently recognize donor cycles as a covered service, but our financial team will verify all coverage details prior to your treatment and will discuss all potential costs with you. The total price of donor cycles can range drastically depending upon the specific type of treatment you are planning on, but on average, a donor cycle will cost approximately $30,000.
