I haven't posted anything medical in a bit, so wanted to give you all an update on where we are. In my first post regarding IVF, I forgot to mention that we have a thrombophilia panel scheduled for next week. Based on the timing of our losses, my doctor doesn't think this will reveal any problems, but wants to check (I'm all for checking everything). We called another local RE, and they were super helpful...they fit us in on Tuesday for a second opinion consult, so I am looking forward to that. This will be the first female RE I've seen, so that's sort of exciting. Finally, we have found a minimal IVF program less than two hours from our home, and we are going to call them Monday and hopefully schedule a consult. We aren't sure if that would be a good option for us, but it sounds intriguing so we at least want to look into it.
Our insurance does not cover any part of IVF, but we had previously been told that about $3,000 worth of services could be billed in such a way that they would pay. Our plan is changing on January 1st, though, and the insurance coordinator at our clinic thinks we have lost that coverage. I know that when you are spending this much money $3,000 shouldn't be such a big deal, but it was a devastating blow to me. If only we lived in a state where coverage was mandated!
