Extend Fertility doesn’t accept health insurance. However, if your health plan covers egg freezing services, we’ll provide you with the documentation you’ll need to submit a claim to your insurance company.
Your medications are ordered through a pharmacy, which will bill you separately (Click here for a list of pharmacies that carry egg freezing medications). Follow these steps below to understand if your health insurance plan will cover the medications above.
Contact your insurance company to ask if your specific plan requires prior authorization for certain types of high-cost medications.
If your health plan does require prior authorization, follow the steps outlined in Option A, below. If your plan does not require prior authorization, follow the steps outlined in Option B, below.
Ask the health plan representative if your specific plan covers elective egg freezing (alternative names your health plan may use: oocyte preservation or cryopreservation).
If your health plan does cover elective egg freezing, that’s great! You have what you need from your health plan. Advise your healthcare team at Extend Fertility and we’ll work on your behalf to secure your prior authorization.
Unfortunately, if your health plan requires prior authorization but does not cover elective egg freezing, your medication costs will not be covered by your insurance.
Ask the health plan representative to check if the list of medications above is covered by your plan. If all or some of them are covered, ask your health plan representative if there’s a specific pharmacy you will need to use to order the medications. Then, share that information with us.
