I did a Google Images search for "good news" and couldn't pass this one up. Ah, the ugly truth . . .After hours upon hours of phone time with my pharmacy, Nurse J, & Freedom Fertility Pharmacy (FFP) . . . My meds are on the way! The BEST PART? Between FFP and my lovely Maria donating me a few leftovers, the total cost for all of my meds is about $150. That is SO MUCH better than $8000!!!! I honestly can't believe it. What relief. While I was thinking it might be between $500-$600 OOP, that $150 is a hella lot better than any other numbers other than free.
Another bonus? Thanks to DH's lovely numbers in the past, we aren't required to leave his mighty soldiers for freezing at tomorrow's appointment. That will save another $157!
We still have another $250 OOP for my MET. (Stick w/ me, Marsha, it's another acronym!) MET is a Mock Embryo Transfer is exactly what it says - a practice run of the embryo transfer sans embryos. It is basically a uterine mapping that Dr. S will do to determine the position of my cervix and where the best placement will be for our (cross your fingers) fresh embroys during transfer. Due to no issues during my failed IUIs of the past, I don't anticipate any issues with the MET or ET.
Of course, there is still the $14K that will cover everything from appointments, baseline u/s, additional u/s, tons of blood draws, the ER, the ET (including surgical room, anesthesia, supplies, etc.), blood pg tests, and pregnancy 2 u/s. This also will include freezing any additional embryos for up to a year.
While over $14,000 is a HUGE amount of money, I was happy to learn that it's not thousands more. I just had to share this with my captive, voluntary audience. I hope this is Part One of much good news to come!!! :)
