Embryo Co-culture is an "uproven treatment" per United Healthcare?


#1

embryo co-culture is unproven?


#2

I found this article but the abstract does state that “Patients with repeated implantation failures or poor embryo quality may benefit from embryo culture using the co-culture
technique…”

Embryo co-culture at my clinic is ‘only’ $450. I say ‘only’ b/c in the grand scheme of how much I’m paying out of pocket for a cycle, it’s not that much. Although all of these little extras do add up whether you have insurance or not.

If you can get it covered by insurance, that’s fantastic. But otherwise it’s really not that much to pay for yourself if you have insurance covering the majority of your cycle.
