Hello again Health777,

Below you will find the results of my research for data, resources and
information regarding fertility clinics worldwide.

United States

The Costs

According to the American Society of Reproductive Medicine, the
average cost of an IVF cycle in the U.S. is $12,400.

?This price will vary depending on where you live, the amount of
medications you're required to take, the number of IVF cycles you
undergo, and the amount your insurance company will pay toward the
procedure. You should thoroughly investigate your insurance company's
coverage of IVF and ask for a written statement of your benefits.
Although some states have enacted laws requiring insurance companies
to cover at least some of the costs of infertility treatment, many
states haven't.?

?Also be aware that some carriers will pay for infertility drugs and
monitoring, but not for the cost of IVF or other artificial
reproductive technology. RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association
publishes a booklet called the "Infertility Insurance Advisor," which
provides tips on reviewing your insurance benefits contract.?
RESOLVE's website is at

Success Rates

?Success rates for IVF vary depending on a number of factors,
including the reason for infertility, where you're having the
procedure done, and your age. The CDC compile national statistics for
all assisted reproductive technology procedures performed in the U.S.
The statistics group together all procedures that constitute assisted
reproduction technology (ART), including IVF, GIFT and ZIFT, although
IVF is by far the most common.?

The most recent report from 2000 found:

?Successful pregnancy was achieved in 30.7% of all cycles. 
About 69% of the cycles carried out did not produce a pregnancy. 
Less than 1% of all cycles resulted in an ectopic pregnancy. 
About 11% of these pregnancies involved multiple fetuses. 
About 83% of pregnancies resulted in a live birth. 
About 17% of pregnancies resulted in miscarriage, induced abortion, or
a stillbirth.?

IntegraMed? Shared Risk® Refund Program for IVF Treatment
Boost Success and Limit Costs with this Special IVF Treatment Plan


"This Program is an alternative payment option for patients undergoing
IVF treatment. Patients that qualify for the Program pay IntegraMed a
fixed fee for up to three IVF cycles and three frozen embryo transfers
in an effort to overcome infertility. If treatment is not successful,
up to 100% of the program fees are refunded."

"Our success rates are high. In fact, nearly 75% of the patients who
complete the program take a baby home!"

"The reality is that most patients will need more than one IVF cycle
to be successful. Patients willing to commit to multiple IVF cycles
can dramatically increase their ability to bring a baby home. The
affordability of multi-cycle treatment, combined with the commitment
of those who enroll has contributed to the high success rate of
patients within the IntegraMed Shared Risk Refund Program."

"The IntegraMed Shared Risk Refund Program maximizes your chances of
success with IVF through a 6-cycle treatment package. Participation in
this program minimizes your financial risk by fixing the cost of
treatment and preserves your financial resources by providing a
significant refund should treatment be unsuccessful."

Malpani Infertility Clinic 

Indian clinics are performing a growing number of IVF treatments for
foreigners frustrated with disappointing results and soaring costs at

The number of Brits and Americans coming to Malpani Infertility Clinic
in Bombay has jumped dramatically in the past three years

?Infertile couples are drawn to India largely because of the lower
cost of treatments and lighter regulations. The British Human
Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) has outlawed payments to
surrogates, but they can be (and usually are) reimbursed for expenses
up to $18,000. On the other hand, the Indian Council of Medical
Research allows Indian surrogates to claim monetary compensation, as
well as expenses?but these usually don?t amount to more than $5,400.
The cost of getting pregnant through IVF treatment in Britain is also
pricey and so complex that the BBC has based a TV drama, ?The Family
Man,? on the adventures of an enigmatic fertility expert. At private
clinics, which do 70 percent of all IVF treatment, costs can run to
$18,000 a cycle. Indian clinics offer the same treatment for around
$7,200?and they throw plane tickets and a hotel stay into the

Bobbie, please include more, in your excellent research, of the following:
--More info on Mexico?s fertility centers, (located in Mexico), near
border towns such as El Paso and San Diego, (and further in Mexico),
as these centers can be reached with a $200. air fare and  bus and
taxi rides .  People need to know the cost of treatments, surrogates,
eggs, sperm and the results of their treatment, (successes and
failures). This same information needs to be provided for Thailand.

Hello again Health777,

Below you will find the information requested for Thailand and Mexico.

Thailand?s capital of Bangkok is home to two of the world?s best
fertility clinics. Both the Bumrungrad International Hospital and
Jetanin Institute for Assisted Reproduction are state-of-the-art
medical facilities staffed by doctors who have trained and practiced
in the United States.

Jetanin Institute for Assisted Reproduction is the largest  fertility
clinic in Thailand.

?IVF is the most common procedure for the so-called "fertility
tourists." The process can cost more than US$10,000 in Europe or North
America, but could be as little as one-third that amount here.?

he cost varies between each method, each infertility center and each
country. At Jetanin Hospital the usual cost range from USD 800 - 2,500
or Baht 40,000 - 100,000 for each treatment cycle , excluding the cost
of drugs. When comparing the costs it is important to determine
exactly what is included in the fees.
