FossilLady:  Some of my original blood tests (and even my first prescription of Clomid, as well as my first ultrasound) were all done by my OBGYN, not an RE. Might your insurance cover the costs if they’re not done by a specialist?

I work for the DOD and I still don’t have coverage on any fertility treatments. Government insurance is touted as being pretty great price and coverage wise. Like you, I also have 100% prenatal and delivery coverage. All blood work, tests, trratements etc related to infertility I have to pay out of pocket entirely. I can’t stand it!

neither mine nor DH’s insurance covers fertility treatments. granted, we haven’t done any invasive procedures yet, but the initial workup hasnt been as bad as I thought. most of my blood tests were covered, my genetic testing was $100, DH’s SA was also surprisingly covered. these were all done by an RE/urologist. it sucks because we live in a state that supposedly mandates IF coverage, but we’ve now found out that it’s only for medical necessity and only throgh HMOs, so we get nada.
