How much was your FET???

Post by Neffi211 » Sat Feb 27, 2010 8:18 pm

I was wondering for all those out there who have done a FET...what was the cost? I know there is a wide range, but I feel that $4250 is alot, and I was just wondering what the average was. Thanks alot.

They run from free to about $5000. $4000 is pretty typical.
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.

At my clinic, the procedure is around $1400. I'm not sure how much my medicine will be. I plan to begin the process late April / early May.

Mine was $2200 which included everything except meds. The PIO shots and estrogen patches were extra. It was a successful cycle so I was on the PIO and estrogen patches for 12 weeks.

That does sound high to me.. In looking back at my receipts, (we did 2 FET's), they were both around $1,800.00. My insurance covered the estrogen pills and PIO shots, so the $1,800.00 was our only expense. Good luck to you!

Mine is around $1800 (and that doesn't include meds) - we have to pay everything out of pocket but at least this time we don't have the follistim (that stuff is expensive!!!)

Best of luck!!

My FET was $3100 plus meds. I was lucky, my great RE knew we were self pay and only had $ for one cycle. He did a second cycle for me for free, so we could use the rest of our frosties!. God Bless him!

I was quoted $3,000 for my FET but after 2 failed IVF's they didn't have me pay upfront like usual and credited me most of it out of kindness. I think I might owe 500 after all the credits, still waiting for my final statement. I am sure the cost varies depending on where you live and how competetive the facilities are being with each other in the area.
