Infertility Treatment Costs
Infertility treatment can be a very emotional and financially stressful experience. The staff at the Fertility and Gynecology Center realizes this and has made an effort to control the cost of infertility treatment. Oftentimes couples are scared off by media reports of how expensive it is to undergo in vitro fertilization. What they do not realize is that the majority of couples will become pregnant using less expensive technologies such as intrauterine insemination or through medical treatment of conditions such as ovulatory disorders, all of which Dr. Ramirez is highly qualified to treat and has achieved excellent results. Patients only qualify for IVF after a long and comprehensive evaluation by Dr. Ramirez. Studies have demonstrated that treatment by a fertility specialist is the most effective means of diagnosing and treating infertility. Our staff has had over 18 years of experience in this field and understands the needs of the infertility patient. Our financial counselor, Melissa Magno, is ready to discuss your options, check with your insurance and bill out if necessary. One of our goals is to make sure patients are fully informed about cost and therapy options. The fees listed below are effective January 1, 2018 and are subject to change. **For information on our Military Discount, see below.
