Before dawn this morning we were on the road to our IVF orientation. It is only about 30 minutes away but with the standard, daily, unexplainable Philly traffic it has taken us over an hour somedays so at 5:40a.m. we were out the door!
We had an amazing nurse who told us everything we needed to know and was beyond helpful and informative. I learned so much in only an hour of my life! Such a process IVF is. We are still HOPING that we will not have to cross that bridge but at least if we do, we know what we are doing.
After the appt, I spent over an hour on the phone w/ our insurance company and prescription plan company to see what we are and are not covered for. All I can now say is that we are unbelievably lucky! The majority of IVF will be covered for us!!!! Oh happy dance!! :) If it were not covered, we would not be proceeding with it as the injectable meds run about $8,000 a month. I do not get how anyone can afford this!!! It seems unimaginable! My heart goes out to everyone TTC via IVF who hit this financial road block....
We are so lucky and I am so beyond thankful that we are covered. Out of the IVF injectable meds (Lupron, Bravelle, Follistim, Gonal F, and Menopur) all are covered except Lupron. Not sure why that one is not covered but hopefully one of the other four will work for us!
So that is where we are at on this journey!
Spending all of our time hoping for our BFP this month!!
