My meds were covered under insurance... so I don't know how much those were. That's if you have the embryo already.

I paid an additional $4K to be part of the "donor" embryo program.

I have serious sticker shock at $3200 quoted by RBA for a FET.

Why does it cost so much in the US? Is it like the housing market - they will take whatever people are willing to pay?

In Canada, the top clinic at a renowned university charges $1200. I think that's as high as it goes in this country.

My DH and I want to do elective single embryo transfer, but the fees charged in the US create a strong incentive for 2 embryo transfer. Sigh.

about $4K. Funny, I think it's cheap... but that's only because I'm comparing it to a fresh cycle!!

For some reason I thought that RBA charged $3,500 for the FET...glad to hear it's $3,200. Another fee...$1,500 for the freezing and storage of the embies for 2 years. I've heard that you can pay $1,000 for storage for one year instead. I think what kind of shocked me about this is that the cost of FET is included in the DE cycle costs at many other clinics.

$3925 for a FET at C.ornell. The cost did lead us to transfer two - one of the two frozen blasts was not of great quality and I would not have paid the fee to transfer the poor quality one if we were unsuccessful with a SET.

You don't mean $250 storage at RBA do you as I have seen this price in print? Assuming that you do not..LUCKY you to have a storage fee of only $250. I have to say..I thought that my IVF clinic was nutz when they charged me about $600 for storage...but RBA makes them sound reasonable!!

I am in Canada, and what I heard wasn't $1200. I will look into my papers.
