The cost of infertility diagnosis, treatment and associated medications can be extremely high. Patients without insurance coverage for infertility testing and treatment often decide whether to seek treatment based on their ability to pay. Many clinics provide financing and guarantee or refund programs (money back if treatment is unsuccessful). Banks and other lending institutions also offer financing programs. But finding specific infertility financing programs can be difficult. RESOLVE has compiled the following list of financial aid and products available to consumers to help pay for reproductive health medical treatment and medications. Please contact each company directly for full details of the product and to determine if it is right for you.
RESOLVE does not endorse any of the listed products and programs.
