the cost of IVF

When we were first starting out, I obsessively tried to find information – actual numbers – about the real cost of IVF.  We are extremely fortunate to have wonderful insurance coverage, but thought that it might be helpful to someone else to see the numbers we are working with here in Central NJ.

Costs for initial diagnosis and IVF + ICSI: 

  • Total billed to insurance: $21,013.80
  • Total insurance paid: $8299.58
  • Total out of pocket: $1596.47
