Hi there - I am a longtime ivillage friend but new to this board.
My husband and I adopted a beautiful little girl almost 3 years ago and now we are looking to expand our family.
We actually are part of the few people I know with really great health insurance.
We have one IVF cycle on our insurance that we could take advantage of, where the out of pocket would be quite minimal.
With that in mind, do you all have any guesstimates on what the other costs of a donor egg cycle might entail?
I am guessing that the fee to the egg donor is not covered and her other medical costs would come out of our pocket. What other fees are typically not covered by insurance?
Or if you have any links to where this topic is addressed, I'd greatly appreciate it! This is probably a question that everyone asks!
We really don't care about the genetics as much as having a child, and so we are trying to figure out what is more affordable for us - an egg donor cycle or a domestic adoption. With our terrific insurance, I am wondering if I should look into a donor egg situation.
