How much does IVF cost?

That is a straightforward question that should have a clear and simple answer. However, at some IVF centers the answer is confusing.

Some clinics charge separately for the various components of IVF. For example, there can be charges from:

  • A hospital
  • The lab that runs the blood tests
  • Radiology for ultrasounds
  • Anesthesia providers
  • The IVF laboratory
  • The fertility doctors

Be sure that you understand the total cost of the in vitro fertilization cycle before committing to treatment. The average cost for a complete IVF cycle in the US is about $12,000 plus medications. In large metropolitan areas it is often higher.

There are some low cost IVF programs that charge significantly less than average, while others charge $15,000 or more for a complete in vitro cycle without medications.

Do not equate cost with quality when it comes to IVF. Some clinics charge a lot but have low success rates. Be sure to know the IVF live birth success rates at any center you consider.

  • Some clinics have a low IVF cost and low success rates so that it ends up costing more to have a baby

Medication Costs for IVF

Costs for IVF medications are not included in our IVF pricing plans. Medication costs can be as low as $1500, but average about $3000 and vary according to the unit price, the dosage and the duration of the ovarian stimulation. Meds can cost up to $7000. Insurance sometimes covers IVF medications.

Full fees vs. cash discounted fees

All in vitro fertilization costs listed on this page reflect "cash discounts" and are paid in advance unless we have a written statement from an insurance company saying that they will pay.

"Cash discounted" IVF costs are for couples without fertility insurance coverage, or those that prefer to pay in advance and submit their own billing to insurance.

Insurance companies do not accept a "package price" for IVF (there is no CPT code for it). Because insurance is billed by individual procedure, the total billed depends on what is done during the IVF cycle.

The total billed to insurance for the IVF-related codes (without ICSI) is about $8000 at our center. The total billed for ovarian stimulation monitoring for IVF is about $2000.

Coming to us from out of town for in vitro fertilization

Many couples travel here from other states in the US or Canada for their IVF treatment.

A comparison of clinic success rates may not be meaningful because patient medical characteristics, treatment approaches and entrance criteria for ART may vary from clinic to clinic.
