HRttc2: $10,000 doesn’t seem like much in comparison to an IVF cycle, but it is at least 2-3 times what other places charge. The clinics that either specialize in this or have short waiting lists charge about 3,000-4,000. You can sometimes get embryos from a clinic you’re using simply for the price of a transfer. Remember, embryo donors are not getting paid for donating, unlike egg donors or sperm donors. Anything beyond the cost of a transfer is payment to the clinic for offering the service. Also, at CCRM that cost includes some things (like psychological counseling for the donating person/couple) that the donors pay for themselves anyway, so CCRM is getting paid twice for that. (This issue came up a while back on this thread and a donor was furious to see what CCRM was charging people to receive her embryos). Also, to my knowledge, you are paying for a single transfer of 1-2 embryos. You would pay the same price if you decide to another. At some places, you get the entire batch that a person/couple has donated for your initial price and then just pay a smaller fee for any subsequent transfers. You might say the extra cost is worth it because you’re getting embryos from CCRM’s lab. The stats I was quoted are indeed slightly better than some others. Be aware, though, that you have to be under 35 to donate embryos, so you are less likely to be getting CCS tested ones. I’d say going with CCRM for embryo donation makes most sense if you have a lining issue and want to be treated there, or perhaps if they do let you transfer a donated one with one of your own that is there.
