My IUI's (no insurance coverage) cost me $271. I've seen them range from $150-$400, depending on the doc and the area.
HOWEVER...I noticed something strange, and I don't know if its particular to my RE's office or what...
But typically they ask for payment that day...just like they would a co-pay. Well, at my first visit, the doc told me that IUI's would cost $350. When I showed up for my first one, it was a Saturday, and the receptionist wasn't there, so they never asked me for payment. I assumed they would bill me, and I would send it my $350 then.
But when I got the bill, it was for $271. I thought maybe there was some charge that hadn't been added to the bill, so I paid it and waited for the other $79 to be billed at some point.
It never was.
When I went for my 2nd IUI, they asked me for $350 for payment. I asked if they could bill me as I was getting paid later that week and planned to pay the bill then. They said that was fine. I got the bill a bit later.....and again it was for $271. Same thing happened for my most recent IUI.
I've hypothesized that it has something to do with coding or something...and that their "self-pay" rate is different than their "insurance paid" rate, and that's the difference I'm seeing. Either way, every IUI I have, I will ask them to bill me, and save the $80.
Just wanted to pass that on...in case its not particular to my RE.
If you're not having a problem O'ing, then I wouldn't think that an IUI cycle would need to be medicated just because of the IUI. The only thing they might advise is ultrasound monitoring, so they'll know for sure when you're ovulating, and maybe using a trigger shot so they know precisely the best time to do the IUI. In case you need the info, I pay for my trigger shots (ovidrel) out of pocket, and at Walgreen's I pay $73. Though if you have enough notice to order online (at a place like www.fertilitylifelines.com
) they can be as cheap as $30.
Hope this helps!
