We get tons of questions regarding the costs of fertility treatments. At RGI, costs for an IVF cycle vary as each personalized treatment plan is created for our patients’ unique journeys. However, to give our patients a better understanding of what they might expect, we’ve created this general guide for IVF treatment cost ranges.
IVF costs vary, averaging from $12,000 and $30,000 for a single IVF cycle. When comparing cost information from different fertility practices, it's crucial to understand what is included in their pricing as this can vary widely and leave patients to incur unsuspected costs.
