Discover affordable fertility care at our Northern Louisiana fertility clinic
David T. Vandermolen, MD, MS, founded our Northern Louisiana fertility clinic to provide top-notch fertility care to our patients. He believes that every person should have access to affordable fertility care.
We know that struggling to conceive can leave you feeling frustrated, and the financial aspect of fertility treatment can add to your stress. Our entire administrative team works to ensure that our patients receive a thorough explanation of all fertility treatment costs.
Understanding medical insurance and fertility treatment
Often, insurance policies are full of “legalese” and confusing language. For example, many providers cover diagnostic testing, but may not cover the actual treatment procedures. Our billing specialists are trained to help you review your coverage details and break down your specific plan information.
Considerations to minimize fertility treatment costs
We understand that blood work, sonograms and numerous appointments can start to add up quickly. Because insurance coverage can vary, calculating fertility treatment costs can feel like trying to hit a moving target.
Dr. Vandermolen offers several recommendations to assist patients with accessing affordable fertility care.
- Understand the scope of treatment
Review your complete breakdown of any proposed fertility treatment costs, so there are no surprises once you begin the process.
- Set realistic expectations about what you can afford
Examine your budget to see what you and your partner can manage every month, especially if you end up financing any costs. Have an honest conversation about how many rounds of treatment your budget can handle.
- Meet with a professional
A financial planner can review your long-term goals and look at all your assets to create a realistic idea of your complete financial picture.
- Accurately compare financing options
Before you sign on the dotted line, research the available options, such as personal loans, lines of credit, low-interest credit cards, and medical care financing companies. If either you or your partner have an HSA, remember that you can use it for out-of-pocket expenses.
