Welcome to this thread! So glad to "meet" another REACH patient!
I am so sorry to hear you were terminated from the shared risk program. This is one of the cons I've read about shared risk ... opponents to shared risk say that the patients are "cherry picked" thereby enabling the clinics to boost their success rates.
I would also be frustrated. It's difficult for me to say definitively but, if there is an avenue for appeal, I would probably persue it. Maybe the ohter ladies will have better insight, this is all very new to me.
When you say "getting out while you can" are you referring specifically to shared risk of IVF? I do hop ethat you will continue your effort, with or without shared risk. Everything I read about REACH gives me good vibes. I worked with a clinic in Jersey (did two IUIs) that was pretty bad.
Thanks for posting that article!!! Definitely helps me feel like I chose the right IVF clinic this time around!
Thanks for the info about the clinic in Buenos Aires! Maybe it will help someone here. I took a glance at their website but they don't have any info in English yet. I've heard of many people seeking medical care overseas to cut down on costs. 20/20 did a program on "Medical Tours" I think it was called. For instance, a senior went to India to have hip replacement surgery. Total costs for surgery, airfare and top notch treatment at a beautiful hotel for a couple weeks was considerably less than the surgery alone in this country. However, I'm not even brave enough to go across the country for medical care, let alone out of the country. I would probably feel differently if it pertained to a life threatening situation.
Ann, where are you in your cycle? Are you in the 2ww? Hang in there. Best wishes.
Did you surge?? And did you figure out the ticker??
