Fees for Egg Donation

 

Please consult with a Fertility Bridges Match Coordinator about Agency Fees since they vary due to a multitude of factors, such as:

  • Your Donor’s proximity to your fertility clinic.
  • The fee your Egg Donor charges.
  • If your Donor has donated before.
  • The timing of your egg donation.
  • If your egg donation is anonymous (most are).
  • If you qualify for a charitable discount.

Our goal is to make egg donation affordable for as many families as possible. We have a philanthropic programs for lower income families and 75 (out of 450) Donors have only a $3,500 fee (well below the industry average of $7,000).

 

Fertility Bridges agency fee: $6,500-$7,500

Egg Donors separate fees: $3,500-$10,000

Additional Fees Charged by Other Companies 
(all costs are approximate and subject to change):

 

$800-$1,200: Legal Fees

Legal fees for your third party reproductive legal agreement between you and your Donor. You must hire attorneys that specializes in reproductive law.

 

$400: Insurance

Donor medical insurance for the egg donor cycle obtained from a quality insurance company. You must take responsibility to check that this has been purchased on your behalf prior to the cycle or you will be responsible for your Donor’s medical costs.

 

$3,000-$4,500+: Travel Expenses

Travel expenses are incurred for all Donors. If you take an active part in shopping for the best travel deals, this number may be reduced. Typically hotels for Donors average $125 a night, car rental is $75 a day, food per diem per day for Donor and her companion start at $75. Airfare can vary dramatically depending on if the flights have to be changed or booked last minute, which is often the case due to the unpredictability of how a donor will stimulate. Also it would be thoughtful if you budgeted for a personal gift for your Donor after the retrieval that says thank you in a meaningful way since most Donors partake in this process because they are eager to help another family create life. Many IVF clinics want the Donor to come to the clinic twice. The first time for one day of screening and the second time for a week for the retrieval. Due to the fact out of town Donors can add considerable expense, it may be more cost efficient to find a Donor who lives near your fertility clinic so you may be able to eliminate air travel or hotel expenses, though they would still incur some travel expenses.

 

We require Donors to stay a full 48 hours after the retrieval so they can visit the doctor for an exam the 24-30 hours after the retrieval to check her health. The IVF doctor is better able to treat any side effects much better than an emergency room doctor in the donor’s home town, so this is the safer option for the donor.

 

$1,000-$2,500: Monitoring Fee

Outside monitoring fees for non-local Donors paid to separate IVF clinic to perform lab work and ultrasounds of Donor during the stimulation process. Your doctor will give you a better estimate of all the medical costs involved.

 

$2,000-$4,000+: Medication

Medication costs for Donor paid to a fertility pharmacy. These costs can vary dramatically depending on what stimulation protocol your doctor prescribes.

 

It is important that you talk to your IVF doctor about the Donor’s egg retrieval protocol and make sure your doctor is not aiming to stimulate more than 15 eggs. Doctor’s who aim for 20-40 eggs instead of the safer 12-15 eggs (which used to be the standard), not only can cost you double in medicine costs, it can also put your Donor’s health or life at risk (and potentially you at financial risk in a lawsuit). Also, the quality of each egg can be reduced because quantity does not equal quality, as many IVF experts will attest to.

 

$25,000-$35,000+: IVF Clinic Fees

This is the average fee that IVF clinics charge for one egg donation cycle. Some clinics offer a shared-risk program for multiple cycles for a larger fee.

Egg Donor Match Process

Once Intended Parents have selected a Donor from the Fertility Bridges Egg Donor Database, and paid the match fee, Fertility Bridges will provide the name and contact information of the Egg Donor to the Intended Parent’s IVF Doctor and attorney. IVF clinics require Intended Parents to hire an attorney who specializes in reproductive law to draft a legal contract between the Intended Parents and the Donor. Ask your doctor for a referral or we can provide a referral. After both the Intended Parents and Donor sign the legal agreement, the cycle coordination process can begin.

 

EGG DONOR CYCLE FEES PAID TO DONOR

Egg Donor fees are separate from the Fertility Bridges match fees.

Our Database contains over 450 Donors, of which 75 of them have purposely kept their fees very affordable at $3,500 for those Intended Parents who may be financially challenged by egg donation.

The average fee for a first time Donor with a college degree is $6,000 and up to $10,000+ for a repeat Donor.

Keep in mind you must also cover all the Donor’s travel expenses if she travels out of town for your cycle. You could save on these fees if you find a Donor less than 2 hours driving distance to your clinic.

 

Philanthropy Program: If you are a lower income family AND work for a non-profit, you may qualify for charitable discounts provided by our’s and other’s philanthropic organizations that serves fertility clients. Please inquire about the details.
