This kind and sweet woman verified my information, listed the prescriptions that were sent to her, verified they sounded correct to me (which they did as I pulled up my protocol that listed them), placed me on hold, and then gave me the price. All of my meds cost $4046.07!!! Excuse me. They actually cost $4286.07, but since our insurance covers NO fertility meds at all, we’re self-pay. Self-pay patients received $200 off every $4K spent. So, our final cost is indeed $4046.07. Que the fainting!!!
I mean, wow. I’m not new to this. I remember our IUI meds gave us a bunch of sticker shock and they weren’t exactly inexpensive. But this! Oh my!
So, just what does $4,046.07 cover? Well, I heard the below as it was recited to me. BUT, I don’t think I captured it all correctly as my math isn’t adding up, so I will have to ask them to email it to me. The gist is as follows:
