Financial Information

Our billing staff is available to answer questions related to our financial policy and associated fees. All matters regarding finances should be directed to an NYU Langone Fertility Center billing representative. Please call (212) 263-8647.

Because infertility treatment may be a progressive pathway utilizing a variety of modalities, it is important for you to research your specific insurance coverage prior to treatment. Our onsite Finance Department is available to help review fees and provide information and assistance whenever possible. However, it is of the utmost importance that you fully understand the financial commitment you are making once you decide to proceed with treatment.


Physician Fees

NYU Langone Fertility Center offers comprehensive, state-of-the-art infertility treatments at competitive rates. At the time of your visit, payment will be expected for any copay, coinsurance and/or deductible for the services rendered at the NYULFC. These payments are contractual obligations determined by your insurance carrier and we are obligated to collect all amounts due at the time of service. NYU Langone Fertility Center accepts cash, personal checks, Visa, MasterCard and American Express. You may call our office at (212) 263-8647 with your credit card information for payment of any outstanding balance.

Fees may also be incurred for outside providers while you are under treatment at NYULMC Fertility Center. These fees include, but are not limited to, laboratory testing, radiologists', pathologists', anesthesia, pharmaceutical or NYULMC facility charges.


Insurance Information

NYU Langone Fertility Center policy requires all payments to be made at the time of service. If you have insurance, you are responsible for obtaining reimbursement for services rendered from your insurer directly.

Many health insurers have an online process that allows for verification of coverage for infertility services. We also suggest that you contact your insurer’s customer service call center. Please note that even if you have an infertility benefit, you may still be required to obtain prior authorization before starting therapy.

Some insurance plans have lifetime maximums for infertility treatment and require prior authorization/pre-certification and/or registration with infertility case management once it is determined that treatment is appropriate. Although our onsite Finance Department will provide assistance whenever possible, it is your responsibility to obtain proper authorization and/or to register with the appropriate case management team at your insurance carrier.

As is insurance carriers' policy, pre-authorization does not guarantee payment. Benefits may be denied or only partial payments received based upon the status of your benefit at the time the claim is processed. Patients covered under any insurance plan are responsible for payment of co-pays, co-insurance, deductibles, excluded or non-covered services/procedures at the time of service or upon notification. The patient must provide full and complete information regarding their primary and secondary insurers, and follow the guidelines established by the carriers for obtaining benefits.

You should be aware that insurance plans written in NY are mandated by law to provide coverage for infertility treatment and diagnosis, however, IVF is excluded from the mandate.

Major and minor surgeries must be preauthorized with your insurance carrier. In most cases, prior authorization for surgery will be obtained by the administrative assistant of your consulting physician. A deposit for surgery will be required at the time the surgery is scheduled. The patient is reminded that preauthorization does not guarantee full or any payment of the physician's fee, since payment determination is made by the carrier at the time the claim is received. You are responsible for all outstanding charges (deductible/co-payment/denial) once the insurer has determined its responsibility for the fee(s).
