I have a question about meds. We have coverage for our meds - but are capped at $7500. We’ve so far spent $2300 so we have about $5200 left. We thought that would be plenty to cover our meds for one IVF cycle, but our insurance company is quoting us at more than 6K. Are they ripping us off? I’m not on a lowest dose of meds, but I’m not on an extremely high dosage either? Here’s what I’m on:
300 IU Follistim (10 days)
150 Menopur (10 days)
Most things I’ve read said that -at most - IVF meds will be around 5K. At these prices, Follistim by itself seems to be more than 3K.
Does this seem reasonable? What do other pharmacies charge? Are there cheaper pharmacies out there if we have to do this again and are all tapped out of insurance $?
