Financial & Insurance Information

Our philosophy is to make fertility treatment as efficient as possible and to give our patients the absolute highest value for their efforts and dollars. Because our success rates are constantly at the top AND because our costs are lower, we can guarantee you that the amount it will cost to start your family should be the lowest anywhere.

As I review records from so many patients who have shifted their care to us, it is sad to see how much money and how many trips they have spent already. Often the care is part of routines,  but not well directed for their specific problem . Oftentimes, some have been “pushed” into IVF when other treatments are just as good. We want to partner with you, but with your interests and pocketbook in mind.

Shared Risk IVF Program

Northwest Fertility Center’s Two-for-One Program
To help you better afford needed infertility treatment, Northwest Fertility Center has introduced a new financing option. The new shared-risk self-insurance program offers you the opportunity to pursue two in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycles at a cost that is comparable to one fee-for-service IVF cycle at other local IVF clinics.

Here’s how it works:

  • There are no restrictions to participate in the Shared Risk Self-Insurance Program.
  • The self-insurance dollar amount will vary based on individual patient factors such as patient age, decreased ovarian reserve or PCOS (Polycystic ovary syndrome). However, for many patients the additional insurance dollar amount combined with our lower IVF costs will allow patients to pursue a second IVF cycle (if needed) at a total cost that is still lower than one cycle at other local clinics.
  • If a pregnancy is not achieved on the first attempt, and with any frozen embryos, then you can try a second IVF cycle at no charge except the cost of new medications. This represents an average savings of $7,000.

Background on Shared-Risk Programs
Throughout the country, many different types of shared-risk IVF programs have become popular as an effective way to increase access to needed infertility treatment for the thousands of couples without insurance or with limited financial resources. The details and costs vary considerably. As an example, if couples qualify, they then pay a much greater dollar amount (e.g. $15,000 to $25,000) for up to three IVF attempts. If pregnancy is successful, the clinic will keep the excess money to cover the costs of others without success. So for a couple that conceives on their first try, they have paid at least twice what would have been expended for a single fee-for-service IVF cycle. But should they never achieve a pregnancy, some percentage (50-100%) is refunded.

It is important for couples to thoroughly research these Shared Risk Programs as they are complex. Many couples will not “qualify” after necessary appointments and testing are completed. Many significant costs are not covered, especially expensive fertility medication and all IVF prescreening tests. Nevertheless, some couples prefer to utilize these programs because of the added peace of mind in light of the hard-to-predict outcomes of IVF.

BoasefamilyIt has been 8 months since our beautiful little boy was born and we still talk about how much we love Dr. Stoelk and his staff. I simply can’t say enough wonderful things about Northwest Fertility and our experience. From the first phone call to their office, to our first meeting with Dr. Stoelk, to our last ultrasound, I was blown away by their sincerity, optimism, professionalism, expertise, confidence, and dedication to my husband and I’s future family. After a few appointments, Dr. Stoelk found the perfect treatment for us. We went from being terrified that kids may not be in our future (due to negativity from other doctors) to being blessed with our sweet Lincoln in just 5 months.

This was easily the absolute best experience I have ever had in a doctor’s office. I have already recommended him to many of my friends and will continue to do so. It just doesn’t get any better that this staff. Thank you so much, Dr. Stoelk. You have a very special place in our hearts.

Jordan, Bailey and Lincoln Boase
