Cost of Donor Egg IVF

The cost of donor egg IVF in Dallas Fort Worth can be quite high and varies greatly among IVF centers with some centers charging up to $30,000 before medications for a single cycle.

Donor egg agencies rely on advertisement to find their donors and thereby pass this expense to the recipient. The agency fee can vary depending on geography, ethnic availability and the donor’s previous history of successful cycles. Out-of-town donors can incur additional costs due to travel and hotel expenses.

If you are fortunate to have a relative or a friend who is willing to donate eggs to you, the total cost for the donor egg IVF cycle will be lower due to significant savings on the administrative and the donor fees. Your potential donor should be 34 or younger to optimize your chance of success and she will still need to be screened and evaluated rigorously as an anonymous donor.

Our Fresh Donor Egg IVF Global Fee includes the Unlimited Embryo Transfer feature that allows you to use embryos created within 12 months after egg retrieval. You can have peace of mind to proceed with single embryo transfer as many times as you need to reach your goal while avoiding the risks associated with multiple pregnancies. As long as you have remaining embryos, you can keep trying without incurring additional expenses from us.

Please note that unlimited embryo transfer applies only to embryos created from the egg retrieval of a single IVF cycle. Frozen transfer cycles must start within 12 months from the egg retrieval date. Medications are not included.

F.A.Q.

Common Questions

 

If the first donor egg IVF cycle fails, what's the cost for trying again?

If you have remaining embryos, there is no additional charge to try again up to 12 months from the date of fertilization. However, if you have to repeat the fresh cycle using a different egg donor, the costs will be as listed above.

What are the IVF discounts for teachers and military personnels?

Teachers and military personnels (or veterans) receive $1,000 discount per person. So if one partner is a teacher and the other is a veteran, the couple will have $2,000 discount from their IVF global fee. These discounts are applicable only to self paying patients.

What is the typical cost of medications for donor egg IVF?

The cost of medications for the egg donor can vary from $3,000 to $5,000 and those for the egg recipient can run from $1,000 to $2,000.

Is there financing for donor egg IVF?

Yes, there are several external programs that we can refer you to. 

Do you have a money back guarantee program?

At the present time we do not have a shared risks program, which would be prohibitively expensive to most of our patients.

Does insurance cover donor egg IVF?

Some insurance plans cover the cost of culture and transfer of embryos created from donor eggs. However, they likely will not cover services associated with the egg donor such as donor screenings and compensation.

If I have donor egg IVF coverage can I get treatment at any clinic?

Technically you can, but in order to receive the maximum benefits you may have to facilities designated by the plans as ‘Center of Excellence’.

What is the cost for long term storage of embryos?

Your IVF global fee covers storage of embryos for up to 1 year after their creation. For longer storage we will transported your embryos to Reprotech, a nationwide cryostorage network, which will charge you an annual fee of $400 (the fee may have changed).

What are the fees for testing the embryos (PGT)?

After cells are removed from the embryos, they are sent to a specialized lab for chromosome testing which currently charges $150 per embryo. So if you have 4 embryos analyzed, you will be charged $600 by the outside lab.

How are your donor IVF fees compared to other local clinics?

We believe that our fees are fair and competitive with other programs in the DFW area. Costs for donor egg IVF cycles are expensive and we strive our best to make them reasonable for our patients.
