I had no idea!

Ok, I had some idea of how much it would cost for our dream to come true. I called the RE's office back, that I scheduled our consultation with, and asked how much the initial office visit would cost me.

 $350!!! That includes the office visit and initial cervical exam, that's it.

What? Because I got suckered into agreeing to change my insurance plan to an HSA I have to pay the full contracted price for an office visit but it all goes toward my deductible. Well isn't that swell. Considering I only have $500 in my HSA account since opening it 6 months ago. I am totally freaking out. How am I going to pay for meds, ultrasounds, blood work, let alone the actual IUI. I honestly don't know what to do now. I feel so close to making this happen that I didn't really think about the money.

I am hoping that since our issue is male infertility factor that most of it can be billed to my husband's insurance instead of mine or paying out of pocket. I just pray that we reach the $2000 deductible before I get pregnant that way all of that is covered 100%. Just one more obstacle I have to face in order to have a baby.

2 lovely notes from friends:

I was/am in the same boat of having to pay 100% out of pocket for treatment. I asked my RE if he could work with me since we don't have insurance coverage for infertility and he gave us 50% ALL services!! It's worth asking....
