The price of IVF during a cost of living crisis
Right now we are living through a cost-of-living crisis. We hope that in the future things will even out, but historically when prices go up, they don’t tend to sink back down enough. What does this mean for you, if you’re looking to start or build your family through IVF?
Time is a precious resource when it comes to fertility matters, so waiting for the economy to improve isn’t an option for many. There are also long waiting times and very strict criteria in place for being referred for NHS-funded IVF. Provisions vary across the country – what can be offered in a specific area comes down to the current local ICB (Integrated Care Board) policies. Some ICBs, for example, limit IVF to those under thirty-five years of age.
Undergoing fertility investigations and IVF treatment can be stressful even in the best of times, and the price of privately funded IVF is not a small sum. So, where does this leave those who are running out of options in a cost of living crisis? How do you achieve your hopes and dreams for a family?
As our name suggests, here at Access Fertility we strive to make it easier for more people to access fertility support and treatment. We know right now people need affordable options more than ever, which is why we’ve worked hard to make such options available.
Making IVF more accessible
We’ve listened to our patients, and others, about their experiences, their worries and their fears. The feedback we received was invaluable and played a large part in the development of our current IVF offerings: the Multi-Cycle programme, the IVF Refund Programme, the Donor Egg IVF Refund Programme and the Unlimited Programme. We feel that it is important to find a way to put control back into the hands of those who are looking to start or extend their family.
“We used Access Fertility so that we knew exactly what our IVF treatment was going to cost from the very beginning. We found their service easy to use, efficient and straight forward and I would recommend using this payment method to others who need some reassurance when paying for such expensive treatment. This means once you’ve paid the upfront fee you can concentrate on your IVF journey instead of worrying about mounting treatment costs”.‘M.C. – Trustpilot
This is exactly what we have worked hard to achieve for those who entrust us with their IVF care. By listening to patients’ struggles with IVF price issues, we’re confident that the services we offer are opening doors that, for many, have previously remained shut.
Our Access Fertility IVF Refund Programme offers fixed-price IVF cycles, which saves money and boosts the number of opportunities available for a successful conception. While the end goal is, of course, to welcome a baby into your life, the 100% refund option means that you have financial reserves available for the next step in your journey, be that more treatment or something else.
