First IUI Bill -- Surprised at how much it ended up costing

Postby madmarmar » Mon May 07, 2018 3:09 pm

I've been waiting with trepidation for my first bill to come after our first IUI appointment this month. It was surprisingly low, only $72.02! After the meds, this iui cycle came to be $272 out of our pocket. I thought it was going to be a lot more than that. $272 is a lot of money, for sure, but I thought I was going to be well over $500. Here's the breakdown of costs in case you are curious. I have UnitedHealthCareAlliance insurance through my employer, and they partially cover iui stuff up to 6 cycles, and that number resets if an iui results in a pregnancy.

1. Clomid - i paid around $30, insurance did not cover
2. Ovidrel - Paid $170, insurance did not cover
3. CD 15 ultrasound for follicle check - appointment was $397, but i paid $15 copay only
4. CD 20 iui including sperm wash - appointment was $375, i paid $57.02
