While at the lab for our July transfer, I overheard someone ask if they could get a discount if they paid in cash. Make mental note.
Fast forward to this cycle, I decided to give it a go. It’s time to pay my RE for his part of this cycle (we’re all out-of-pocket except for anything diagnostic like blood work and ultrasounds), so I asked if I would be eligible for a discount if I were to pay in cash. The billing coordinator had to check and call me back. She finally called back and they can offer me a 15% discount if I pay with greens! If I had only known this back when I started IUIs – or when we did the expensive fresh IVF – I probably would have saved enough to fund an entire cycle! Okay, probably not an entire cycle but at least a decent chunk.
I still have to pay the lab fees, which won’t happen until the day of the transfer. I’ll take cash and see if we’re able to get a discount there too. Fingers crossed!
Just thought I’d share as a tip to help those of you out-of-pocket people.
Woohoo! I love a great deal. Even on baby making.
P.S. The transfer is one week from today!
