We got the bill for DH's chromosome study.

$810.

Pretty sure it was just for his because it wasn't plural and it had his name on it. Meaning...there is another one on the way. SOAB!

Much better bill! $810 seems so ridiculous for tests.

Yeah, we both have our own insurance through our different employers - he's a cop, I'm a teacher. Very luckily our insurance coverages are free for us, no premiums.

Wow, $36 is totally affordable. Nice.

Are you and DH on different insurance plans?

Why did his cost so much more?!

Ok, I was right. That colossal bill was just for DH's genetic study. I got the bill for mine today.

Oh no, I didnt not have a D&C... that costs was a NATURAL MC! I almost wish I did because my insurance would have paid up to 4k of the bill if I did, but stupid me didnt know that until after :/ So I thought I was going the cheaper route...

ohhhh Chouli, Im so sorry!!! Rhat is purely awful and evil of them. I hate, hate, hate, HATE medical bills. I am still paying off charges that were billed to us in 2007-2008... and like you sai,d there is always another bill on the way. It is incredibly stressful, not to mention financillay draining.

Again, Im just so sorry, and I wish the insurance system did things a little differently. It seems like there are so many people out there undeservedly getting free healthcare, while the working world who does have health ins still has to pay an arm and a leg for normal medical procedures... but that's a discussion for another time, I wont get into that right now.

Sorry, I know it sux. My insurance is terrible, that's why I haven't been to the RE yet. DH's insurance does not cover IF at all. Sooo frustrating. Sry

I have spent all my out of pocket money just this year so this will be my first return where I can write it all off. But I also got $6000 for an egg donation that I will be getting a 1099 for. At the end of the day, I will able to write off about $5000. Dunno how much bigger that will make our refund but I will take what I can get!

That's about how much my d&c cost too. DH was surprised that it cost more than his VR.
You're right about all the accoutrements of TTC. I never factored those non-Rx into my equation. I'll bet that adds another few hundred.

We're lucky, I suppose. We've been able to use the last three tax returns to pay down the credit card we have for medical expenses. That keeps our outstanding balance low. We'd hoped this year the tax return could go for some cosmetic dentistry for DH...nope. Back to IUI treatments and paying down that card.
