Mo’ Money

Believe it or not, egg freezing or Vitrification, is still considered experimental for all women except those undergoing cancer treatments. And due to this “experimental” title, most insurance companies and employer plans do not cover the majority of the cost to freeze your eggs. If you are interested in this process, be prepared to pay cash for most of this treatment. One cycle of egg freezing includes physician monitoring visits, blood work, ultrasounds, medications, and surgical facility charges. The average cost of a cycle including medications is $10,000- $15,000 and an additional $600-$800 a year to store your eggs. Be sure to make an appointment with the financial counselor at your fertility center to discuss your cost, financing options, and potential insurance coverage. Also, if your employer offers an FSA plan, be sure to opt in and max out as FSA dollars can be spent for all fertility services.
