We have done 6 IUIs over the past 18 months. My insurance paid for everything except about $500 - that includes meds, co-pays, and all appointments. My insurance is not paying for this donor egg cycle. So, we have to pay for the medication for the donor. She is getting the same stuff I have used -dilute hcg, hcg trigger, gona.l f, and ganarelix. I got the call from the pharmacy yesterday and the total is $2,200.
Wow. That made me very appreciative of my insurance. We may have made different decisions along the way if we had to pay the full price for the meds . I guess the outcome wouldn't have been any different but it would have been harder to decide to do each IUI if the meds alone would have cost 2 grand. I know a lot of you have had to pay that cost on your own all along. That must have complicated each decision.
So, I'm sitting here feeling grateful.
