I was just wondering if any of you have ever done IVF in Ohio and the exact cost of it. I have stage 4 endometriosis, have been through IUI,two surgeries and my doctor says my only chance is IVF. I live around the Akron area and I have a lot of trust in my doctor. Just like many of you, I cannot afford IVF. I read on another post that some states are forcing insurance companies to cover fertility treatments. Does anyone know those states?
Thanks-Stacey<p>[This message has been edited by moderator2 (edited 10-30-2002).]
I have a friend who did IVF two years ago at the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, OH. It cost around
$12,000, and that didn't include the medication.
I heard that some of the larger hospitals in Cleveland
offer money back if the IVF is unsuccessful. I don't
know how true that is, but it might be something to
look into. Hope that helps.
Hi Stacy, I wish you luck first of all, Im from Massachusettes and IVF is covered by insurance if your a candidate and depending on your diagnosis there are a few other states my sister in law knows ill check with her and let you know...Tara
