JJUrney... Sorry to hear about your experience. I am contemplating a cycle #7 and I am looking into possible clinics. While I haven't been to Columbia, I went to the 2 in RI, and pretty much didn't have a good experience at either as well. It wasn't necessarily due to the doctor and the re's knowled...

I've been to 2 different clinics, and everytime, I had a different dr for the retreival, egg transfer--whoever was scheduled that day. I guess it's pretty standard?

I was thinking of Cornell as well. Finances are an issue. I did get a packet from them and I was a little concerned about it financially, so I sent them an e-mail. Never got a response, so I called the financial department. Basically, my insurance is Anthem BCBS. It appears that they are in-network ...

Baystate Reproductive Medicine??

This might be a double post--if so, I'm sorry. Just wondering if anyone has tried this place in Springfield, MA. They seem to have a good success rate for people in my age group (according to SART website). I am looking into different clinics....

Baystate Reproductive Medicine??

Has anyone tried this place? I've been on the SART website, and their numbers for the 41-42 age group seem to be among the best in Mass/RI/CT/NY. I cannot travel very far from RI, so if I decide to go for more, I am really trying to get a clinic w/ a combo of good results and good OVERALL care. Whil...

Carolyn---Thanks so much for the advice. Right now I am waiting for a booklet from the insurance to find out who's in network (covered at 100%) and who's not in network (good to have anyway for other docs). If I do #7, I really want it to count and make sure that I go to a clinic that's within drivi...

souris--- Good luck to you. I hope it works out for you. I hope it works out for you. We had insurance out of Mass which covered IVF at 100%--up to 6. We did 6. #5 worked for us--kind of it ended in an etopic, so I did a #6. It was kind of rushed since we were trying to get it done before my dh swit...

IVF #7????

I've been thinking about doing another cycle. It's been about 1 year and even though I didn't want to give up, I had reached limit of 6 on old insurance. I have been thinking about it on and off and new insurance will cover it. Has anyone done else done a lot? What kind of reception do you get from ...

I have Anthem Blue Cross. When I went on the insurance website, it seems like they be in the network. I do have coverage, but I really don't want to have to charge it, etc. and then go through my insurance. If insurance pays for it, not sure why they can't bill directly...

Thanks for the info. I was a little confused b/c I am interested in trying them, but not if you have to submit everything on your own. Who needs that added stress?

Do you like them? Do you think that they do a good job? Looks like they have several different offices--which one do you go to?

Info on Cornell anyone

I am considering doing one more cycle, possibly. The good news is that our new insurance seems to cover it--looks like almost 100% for in-network and there are some out of pocket expenses if we go "out of network." I went on the insurance website and it looks like Cornell is in network, but when I r...

I am a poor responder also and I was usually stiming any where between 11-14 days. I got anywhere from 2-4 eggs retrieved so 3 was about normal for me. My clinic really didn't do this, but sometime a clinice won't proceed unless you have a certain amount of mature eggs. Is it possible they can conti...
