Shared Risk Program anywhere in USA

Post by dys24 » Wed Feb 24, 2010 1:40 pm

Ladies I need your help! I had two previous IVF cycles first resulting in a BFN and second in my gorgeous DD whos two months old. I have one blastocyst frozen from the successful cycle which I'm planning to use in couple of months. I'm hoping and wishing that I'll get pregnant with this blast but in case I need to cycle again I'm looking for an affordable shared risk program anywhere in the USA. I have no fertility coverage and I used UCONN last time for the shared risk program but its just so expensive and I know some of you ladies mentioned paying way cheaper than what it costs to cycle there. FYI UCONN shared risk program with freezing cost me around $30k without meds! It included 3 fresh and 3 frozen cycles and if not successful with any they refund 70%. Single cycle costs around $14k, so I'm looking for something cheaper and don't mind traveling.

Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!!!!

I did not use the Shared Risk program, but I know that the IVF clinic that I used had 2 options. A 2-cycle and a 3-cycle. I believe that the 2-cycle was around $14,000, but I can't swear to it. It is the ART Program in Birmingham, Alabama.

Shady Grove has a good shared-risk program down in Maryland.

I think you will find UConn's pricing is pretty typical. It's also a good IVF center.
Avoid IVF and surrogacy in Ukraine. Ukrainian centers pay shills to post here under numerous sock accounts pretending to be patients in Ukraine. Centers using such deceptive advertising cannot be trusted and should be avoided.

dys24 - This is not a shared risk program. RE does packages though. If you go to HANIVF website it lists the pricing . For a fresh cycle it is $5,500 + meds = approx $8,500. :shock: :shock: A friend of mine told me that price and I kept asking her if it included everything I was amazed. Oh, and by the way she is preggers. I know there is a hotel next to the hospital, cause out of state people are going to RE for that price. RE is only DR you deal with in the practice, YEAH !!!!!!!! I will cycle but have to drop some lbs first and get healthy. :D I hope this helps :mrgreen:

Thank you ladies for all your help! I will check all of those clinics out. I'm happy to know that there is hope for me affording another fresh cycle if i will need one :) Its crazy the difference my clinic charges compared to other clinics in the country.

I'm doing a shared risk as well... http://www.advancedfertility.com. They are located in the northern Chicago suburbs. Price is based on age but includes 3 fresh and any frozens with an option of a 80% refund or 100% refund plan. Meds are not included but they were able to provide me with some meds.
