Hi, and welcome to Affording IVF! This site is devoted to helping people through the financial minefield of fertility treatments, and medical care in general. Modern medicine, especially services that are seen to be more “elective” such as infertility treatments can be costly, and often clinics operate with very little transparency during the care process making it very difficult to figure out how much money your care is going to could cost you. An educated consumer can ask the right questions to significantly reduce the uncertainty involved in determining the cost of any medical care. In my goal to educate my visitors I will cover everything from how to deal with your insurance company to what questions to ask your fertility clinic to make sure you have all the necessary information required to make informed decisions through your treatment. I will cover topics such as what types of insurance make the most sense for you, budgeting, acquiring financing for your care, and much more.
Although site will deal mostly with strategies and techniques for helping patients plan, and pay for their fertility treatments as that is my primary expertise, I will also be providing information that can be helpful for anyone who is going through any kind of medical treatment. If you have any questions, or topics that you would like me to discuss feel free to post them in the comments or use the contact form on the bottom of the page to email me directly. Remember, my goal is to help educate, so don’t hesitate to ask any questions you might have. Because if you have a question it is very likely it is shared by many more people. Enjoy!
