Now we wait.

Chris dropped of his S/A a little bit ago.
Something I am not sure I understand......when our family doc. ordered the S/A he just dropped it off at the lab at the hospital. The insurance covered however much and then we would receive a bill for $15. No biggie right?
Well then today at this fertility place where he had to drop it off, they made him pay right up front....I was like Ummm NO, they need to bill the insurance. Then they explained to him that it is $140. Our insurance will cover half, and we need to pay the other $70.
Seventy dollars?!!?!!!
Ugh. This fertility stuff is already getting expensive and we haven't even really dove in yet.
In the end I am just thankful we have insurance. It is just a bummer because that is sort of a lot of money. My OB told me an IUI costs $150. I'm like dang, let's just do it already.

It is insanely expensive- our second "in-depth" SA was $340 out of pocket. And IUI would have been $1500. You're not doing too bad, considering what we got quoted!

Wow, I guess I should not be complaining. I wonder why such a huge price difference???

That's crazy. But good luck and I hope the results come back how you want them!

how long do you have to wait for results?

I think I might call today to see if my doc. received them yet!! I might not find out until next week.
