IUI Cost

HOW MUCH DOES IUI COST?

Average IUI cost increases with testing and medications

For couples who have been trying to conceive for more than a year, Intra-Uterine Insemination (IUI) is a common method of infertility treatment, but IUI cost can vary significantly based on accompanying medications and testing.

Base IUI cost

Every situation is unique, but an IUI always requires these two steps: sperm washing – to concentrate sperm cells from the seminal fluid – and injecting the sperm into the uterus.
With those elements, the average IUI cost is $250 to $400. When relying on a woman’s natural and regularly occurring ovulation, this could be the only expense.
But this figure does not include previous visits to a reproductive health doctor and tests to explore possible reasons for infertility.

Increasing IUI cost and chances

Other aspects of treatment can increase the likelihood of success and usually accompany an IUI.
Ultrasounds and blood work are used to monitor the ovaries and determine the best timing for a treatment cycle.
Medications often are used to stimulate the ovaries to produce more follicles than usual, giving the introduced sperm the best opportunity to fertilize one of the released eggs.
The type of medication is a big factor in total IUI cost, with some injected medications inching toward $6,000.
At Oregon Reproductive Medicine, Clomid (clomiphene) medication with ultrasound monitoring typically runs $500 to $700. A cycle with injected medication and IUI costs $2,000 to $4,000.

Insurance

The core IUI cost may not be covered by insurance because the procedure does not directly affect a woman’s egg cells but instead increases the chance sperm have of fertilizing an already present ovum.
The good news is that an infertility diagnosis, medications, and other treatment components may be paid in part or in full by health insurance even when the IUI itself is not.
Some insurance companies cover assisted reproductive treatments far more comprehensively, so contact your provider for more information about your plan’s specifics.
