Things to look out for
When comparing the prices pay attention to:
- The full cost, including tests, fertility drug cost, etc.
- The cost of travel, transport, hotels and food
- Value for money
- Any special offers the clinic may be running
- Waiting times at the clinic
- Availability of the egg donor, costs associated with it
The clinic’s initial quoted price may differ greatly from the final total cost. As each individual course of treatment varies, requiring additional procedures, so will the final cost. Very often the price of a standard procedure does not include medication which can cost upwards of EUR1,000. We recommend you are cautious and first make sure that the price quoted includes fertility drugs. Don’t forget to include all ancillary expenses such as blood tests, initial consultations, ICSI, donor eggs or sperm, etc., as these can mount up. Be careful to check what is and what is not included in the quoted price.
To simplify the process, it might be a good idea to ask for a full costing including all expenses.
What you pay for
Check out the standards, staff experience and the average success rate of the clinic. Evaluate how friendly the clinic is and if you can easily communicate with them.
You may find a clinic offering attractive price but if it doesn’t feel like a good fit, it may be better to continue your search for another clinic which is a bit better and not much more expensive.
Don’t forget to budget for any additional travel and accommodation expenses. Such costs can bump up the total price of your treatment, making the initial quoted price seem much less attractive. Consider combining your treatment with your annual holiday to keep expenses to a minimum.
Comparing treatment cost to another cost in a different clinic is rather pointless if you are not sure what are you paying for and what is included in that price. To immerse into the price details you must ask the right questions, which are:What is the course of treatment for ME and how much is IVF for me?
Doctors at a private clinic should have access to you and your partner’s medical history including any tests carried out such as tests for Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) or your partner’s semen analysis. The doctor will advise you whether any further tests are needed or a fertility drug needs to be prescribed. Depending on the state of your health, age, how many children you want or already have the doctor will recommend either proceeding directly to IVF or carry out IUI first. If IVF treatment is recommneded to you, you must consider all the additional procedures such as ICSI – (Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection), embryo genetic testing, etc. Be sure to ask the doctor, how much all the chosen treatment options will cost and, most importantly, what the average number of cycles needed would be.Does the treatment price include tests, medication, lab work and consultations?
The average price quoted for a single cycle of IVF will usually include only the cost of the IVF itself, along with any procedures in the embryology lab, with additional tests, medication and consultations usually charged as additional costs. Remember to ask what is, and what is not included in the price and take careful notes for your later reference.Could you provide me with a detailed listing of all procedures and costs?
Such a list would be very helpful should you need to settle any reimbursement issues with your health insurance provider. It will also help you be more aware of your procedure and to help you avoid any unforeseen expenses.How much will medication cost?
The cost ofmedication is often not included in the final cost of treatment, and you may be given only a very rough estimate of the final cost. As much as a 1/3 of the entire cost of the treatment cycle can be taken up by the costs of medication, so it is important to ask for as detailed a breakdown as possible. There is no need for stimulation as far as egg donation treatment is concerned. However there are still some medications that shoulg be bought by egg recipient.Will my health insurance provider cover all the costs of my treatment?
Even if a clinic does not accept health insurance it might be that your insurance plan covers some parts of the treatment. Try talking with the clinic’s financial counsellor and go through your insurance plan together.
Remember that attractive price does not guarantee you a successful treatment.
Consider using services of a medical tourism agency. Such agencies are experienced in organizing the best possible options for the best price and can offer support in budgeting the final total cost of your treatment, relieving you of the headache of having to do it on your own.
Price should not be your only guide in choosing a clinic or treatment. Above all, go with your instincts and choose the clinic and clinicians you feel are the best fit for you.
