Cost of Egg Freezing
The cost of egg freezing depends on how many eggs a woman wants to freeze, and how many cycles of egg freezing it will take to achieve the goal number of eggs. CHR’s egg freezing program makes it possible for patients to choose an affordable egg freezing plan at one of the most recognized IVF centers in the world.
Cost-Effective Egg Freezing Packages for Each Patient’s Needs
In order to accommodate the varying needs of each woman, we offer egg freezing options with highly competitive package pricing, starting with a single cycle and going up to a 6-cycle package. The table below displays CHR’s pricing structure for egg freezing based on the number of cycles and number of eggs frozen.
Table: Cost of egg freezing package plans*
|Plan||Maximum number of cycles||Minimum number of frozen eggs||Package costs**|
|A||Single cycle||No guarantee||$4,000|
|B||Up to 2||At least 10||$5,900|
|C||Up to 3||At least 15||$7,900|
|D||Up to 4||At least 20||$9,900|
|E||Up to 5||At least 25||$12,900|
|F||Up to 6||At least 30||$15,900|
*Each plan, except for PLAN A, offers maximal numbers of ovarian stimulation cycles/egg retrievals and minimum egg numbers, whichever is reached first.
The following is included in package cost: All ovarian cycle monitoring, follicular ultrasounds, hormone monitoring, egg retrievals and egg cryopreservation (vitrification).
Not included in package costs are: Initial ($500) and subsequent physician consultation ($250), anesthesia services during retrieval ($400), and medication costs (will be dependent on patients’ ovarian reserve). Quarterly storage fees for each frozen egg batch (1ST cycle batch $275, 2ND cycle batch $250; 3rd cycle batch $200; 4th or more cycle batches $150). Per cycle required pretesting is patient-specific and not included.
To the best of our knowledge, CHR’s egg freezing package plans are currently the most rational and most cost-effective package costs for egg freezing offered in New York City and, maybe even in the entire United States.
Cost of Egg Freezing and Ovarian Reserve
CHR’s recommendations on how many eggs to freeze, as well as how many cycles of egg freezing that might take, are estimates based on women with normal ovarian reserve. These numbers can sway upwards and downwards, depending on whether the woman’s ovarian reserve is above average or below average. Moreover, women with low ovarian reserve produce fewer eggs per cycle; how many fewer will depend on severity of their low ovarian reserve. All these factors should be taken into account when estimating the cost of egg freezing. Before making a decision about egg freezing based on these estimates, it is best to consult a reproductive endocrinologist with experience in egg freezing.
