Fertility Medication Costs and Sources

One of the greatest expenses of fertility treatment involves fertility drugs. Medications can cost up to $5,000 or more for each conventional IVF cycle (average $2,500 - $3,500).

Our nurses have extensive experience in helping patients obtain the lowest price possible for legitimate, legal medications and can offer advice regarding the various gonadotropin (FSH) options available.

There are several pharmacies that specialize in national delivery of fertility medications. Freedom Drug,Walgreens. Most pharmacies will help patients determine their insurance benefits for medications that are used during fertility treatment cycles.

Freedom Drug usually provides the best prices on EMD Serono™ infertility products. They also have excellent teaching materials for the administration of most fertility medications. See their drug administration video or download the i Phone/i Pad app. Freedom Fertility Mobile Injection training materials are also available through our Web site using the Patient Portal (please call for details regarding access if needed).
