(I think I got a pretty good deal!)
FYI: I go to a private clinic in Southern California.
My initial consultation was $275 and we met with one of the primary doctors for about 45 minutes.
We decided to move to a Clomid cycle next and I had to buy some pills, all purchased at my favorite place, Target.
200 Folic Acid 1 mg pills +
3 50 pill bottles of Low-Dose Aspirin (Target brand), $23
I did not have to do any additional blood work and my initial Day 3 blood work was covered by insurance. Shocker!
Mr. GG had to get tested for STDs. These 5 blood tests are required by law before an IUI. I'm not sure yet whether or not it was covered. Will come back and edit if it was not.
I also needed OPKs to check for my surge. I got a Clearblue Easy Digital 7 pack on sale at (you guessed it!), Target, for $18.
My clinic has a package deal for a Clomid IUI cycle of $505 which includes:
- 1 ultrasound (on CD11)
- 1 office visit (I guess this is the IUI visit?)
- 1 interuterine insemination (top of uterus)
- 1 intracervical insemination (one additional syringe of the sample into the cervical fluid).
If I would have needed a trigger shot, that would have been $90, an additional office visit with ultrasound would have been $275, and an additional IUI a day later was $205.
So our grand total for Clomid IUI cycle #1 is less than $1000; $546 without the inital consulation, $821 with. I was really surprised!
I really hope that if you need to do an IUI that you can find reasonable services, but I know that other places charge closer to $2-$3,000.
We could have waited until January to have this covered by new insurance, but after we spent the initial $275 to check out this office, we decided to stick with them because I felt so comfortable and well-taken care of there.
Hope this helps some of you!
