: : My RE charges me an office fee ($35) every time I come in for bloodwork, on top of the fee for the lab ($55), even tho I don't actually see or talk to a dr. or nurse, just have blood drawn, I am paying $90. I am paying out of pocket and this is really starting to add up. My reg dr and my ob/gyn don't do this;is this a common practice among REs?

: Tracy,
: In NYC this is not common. We pay one (large) lump sum which includes all of our visits and actual IF bloodwork performed during a cycle. My only thought is that perhaps your RE is running his business in a more ala carte manner? An IVF cycle in NY runs about $8000 just so you have a point of reference. You didn't mention what procedures you're having done - perhaps some of the others on this board can give you an idea of what an IUI cycle runs.
: Debi

Debi, Thanks for the info. This has been for routine blood tests, as well as for IUI preg. testing. I was given a form showing costs for IVF, totalling a little over $9k, not including medication, fees for office visits, or teaching classes. Does this seem high?
