Insurance for Fertility Treatments FAQs
Several insurance companies require a referral from your primary care physician before consulting a specialist. It’s a good idea to contact your insurance company before your first visit to find out if your plan requires a referral.
After your initial consultation and tests, you and your fertility specialist will develop a treatment plan. Once your plan is in place, you should meet with the financial counselor to discuss your insurance coverage, approvals, and any criteria required by your insurance company to ensure that your treatments are covered. If your insurance company does not approve coverage of your treatments, the financial counselor can assist you with other financing options.
The Genetics & IVF Institute does not accept Medicaid or Medicare.
Changing your insurance provider could potentially create a delay in your diagnostics and treatment schedule. It is very important that you contact the GIVF financial counselor right away so your new insurance provider can be reviewed and coverage determined as quickly as possible.
