In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)

In vitro fertilization, more commonly known as IVF, is a form of assisted reproductive technology, or ART. It is a procedure that helps couples conceive using either gametes (egg and/or sperm) from the intended parents or through the use of donor gametes (egg and/or sperm). The egg is fertilized in our lab to create an embryo and then transferred to the woman’s uterus for the embryo to grow.

If you are interested in learning more about the in vitro fertilization process, please read our FAQs. It answers several of our frequently asked questions about the process, including medications, the differences between fresh and frozen transfers, and additional testing options available to you.

Holistic treatments are also an important part of our mission. For many patients, lifestyle or diet changes may not only provide an increased chance of success for a particular treatment, but it could also help to improve the chances of conceiving naturally. Because of this, Dr. Scot Hutchison takes the time to learn more about you and your partner as people and understand your daily habits. Sometimes, he and a Registered Dietician may recommend certain lifestyle changes and, after a period of time, have you retest your fertility to see if any positive changes have occurred. These changes are often less expensive alternatives to baseline fertility treatments, meaning a better use of your money in the long run. You can learn more about our holistic care philosophies and treatments here.

How Much Does IVF Cost?

There are many components to the IVF process and the procedure isn’t one-size-fits-all. Because of this, the cost of IVF can vary. It’s important to understand completely the services and tests included in cycle pricing.

At RHC, our mission is to offer the most competitive pricing for our patients. In the United States, the average price of IVF is around $12,000-17,000. Cash pay patients at our clinic, on average, pay around $10,000 for an IVF cycle. This includes cycle monitoring, anesthesia, ICSI, embryo culture, and embryo biopsy. Medications are billed separately and additional fees can be expected for genetic testing of the embryos (PGT-A and PGT-M). You will want to verify pricing with our clinic as prices can change. For some patients, these costs, or a portion of, are covered by their individual insurance plans. Because of this, it is important to have a full understanding of what your insurance does and doesn’t cover when it comes to fertility treatments. No matter what your situation is, RHC will work with your insurance provider to minimize any out-of-pocket costs when possible. Following your initial consultation here at Reproductive Health Center, we will explain each fee that relates to your treatment, as well as the costs that you will be responsible for after any insurance considerations.
